Is this worth upgrading?

Vod

Hello!

So my budget is 110 euros (around $125)
And I've found an am3+ mobo and an fx 6300 for 100 euros.

I currently have an fm2+ socket moobo and an athlon x4 845.

Is it worth buying?

I mean... It'll definitely be an upgrade. Depends what you use it for though. You can probably find better

Both are new tho, I'll be mostly gaming and maybe some video editing (on Sony Vegas)
Edit: I'll be playing games like fortnite, overwatch, R6S and maybe some other games.

That is a pretty good deal, however you could find some older Intel CPU+Mobo combo's for around the same price.

Something like an i5 2500/2500K & i5 3570's can also be had for € 50 at the right places.

LGA 1555 motherboards are still found new in Belgium and perhaps outside of it, cheapest one I could find of decent quality was the ASRock H81M-VG4 R3.0 for € 40.

 

That will perform hugely better than your FX6300, while that is a decent CPU; pure value I don't see it being the best.

Hope I could help out a little!
