    Can't see this persuading anyone to by an FX cpu with Zen not that far away. Personally, I think the FX range gets a bad rep, they're perfectly capable gaming cpu's. Hell, I'm sat here gaming on an A10 7870K (housed in a cardboard George Forman box) and my other rig is a Phenom II 955 @stock speed coupled to a R9 280x. The FX Cpus are better than both and I've had no issues with gaming so far.

    But that said, just wait for Zen?

    I mean these processors can often be had for between 90 and 120 dollars. for a rig on a budget, there is no reason to wait for zen.

    A nice fast graphics card.

    I did have a look, had been wondering about upgrading my wife's PhenomII with an FX6350 as although the motherboard will take an 8350 I think the heat may be a bit much for that little shoebox sized case.

    I swear the price on ebuyer for a 6350 is at least a tenner more than last time I looked. Ie, about the price of this game

    Hitman seems to be £10.99 on Steam atm.

    I have a 6300 and you can overclock the Brains out of it. Fine for gaming and a good deal If you ask me.
