The FX lineup is more or less dead at this point. Its weak single core performance will hinder performance in games. It's beaten by the G4400 in most games and by the Athlon II X4 860K in everything else

Pentiums are useless and FX4 is cancer. Get an Athlon X4 860K

Look up gameplay of gta V of a 33258/g4400 is a stuttery mess, a quad core( or at least 4 threads) is minimum.

 

If you are on a budget an AMD Athlon 845 and a cheap fm2+ board is like $90-$100.

 

If you really can only afford those two cpus, you are better off saving money for a while, or buying a used cpu/motherboard, like an i5 2400/h61 board.

I would get the FX-4300, it will run away from the 860k and 845 in most games, but then again if you aren't using a super high end gpu you could save a bit of money.

Have you two seen how shitty the 860k is in Overwatch compared to FX-4300? :D

you do get the option to upgrade to an FX 8xxx in the future... but the fx 6300 is only $10 more, so the fx4 isn't that good a value.

I know you said an i3 isn't in the budget, but if you're in the us, you can get an i3 6100 for $100 on jet.com.  I don't know how much you're looking to spend, but using their promo codes I almost guarantee you can get an i3 for around the same price as an fx or g4400 anywhere else except microcenter.   If you do live near microcenter you can get an i3 and h110 mobo for $130.

Technically evwn that is under the minimum specs cor the bf1 beta, a fx6350, or i5 6600k was minimum, and a rx 460 is barely able to make minimum requirements.
