Upgrades will depend on what you want to use it for. Are you currently overclocking the 6300? Which way is your cooler set right now? It looks like its set to pull through the heat sink? Also, it looks like its twisted for some reason? I would use a push/pull configuration on it, just get another fan, the cooler should have come with the clips to attach another fan. Do you have an exhaust fan in the top of the case? I would maybe add one there, with that setup you should be fine on temps and able to overclock fine. For cable management, i'd get some black Velcro straps and pull the bottom psu and cable together, otherwise looks pretty good.

i cant overclock this motherboard is bad for overclocking there are 2 exhaust fan on top i set it to push the heat up away from the graphic card since heat always rises yeah i notice that two i thought it was me i don't have good eyesight lol it must move while i was instaling it a bit i do have some straps but wont that damage the cables? thank you thas why im wondering if it would be worth it to buy a new mobo to overclock or buy a 8300 fx

tiny_voices is right. The FX was released in 2012, that's a 4 year architect, in the pc world that's like 30 yrs. Clock per clock the FX gets smoked by Intel. I still have a FX6300 that I built a few years ago, but I don't use it for gaming anymore. I have since moved on to the Intel i5 6600k. You don't need something that expensive to start with, but if you go with a Intel LGA 1151 its much newer and you could always upgrade the cpu later. The Intel Core i3-6100 would be a good start, its only dual core but has 4 threads. The only down side is that you should really buy a decent motherboard, and it will also require DDR4 ram. The only way I'd even consider the 8300 is if you are on a tight budget and can buy a used 8300 for cheap. Or if you want to get an upgrade and keep your current ram, you could get a Haswell cpu like the i3-4170. Honestly, you best option is to save up and get a newer socket i5 intel. If you are mostly gaming the i5 is the sweet spot, much better than an i3 and almost as good as an i7, but much cheaper.

It would depend. If you go the Skylake ( LGA 1151 ) cpu route on a budget, something like a GIGABYTE GA-H110M, or go with MSI Z170A so you could upgrade down the road and use a unlocked K cpu. You will also need new ram if you go with the skylake cpu as it uses ddr4. If you went with a i3-4170 ( LGA 1150 ) you can go cheap with a MSI H81M-P33, or to give you more upgrade room a ASRock Z97 Extreme6 or a MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition both offer 4 dimm slots and m.2 support and you could reuse your ddr3 ram.

Save your money and upgrade to an intel i3 or i5. Don't waste money on any AM3 stuff at all.

if i buy one of those i would need a new mobo which setup would be good with one of those procesor and why are they better then a 6 core thank you

An i3 has much higher instructions per cycle (IPC) which is why it outperforms the 6300 and even the 8350 in most games. The i5 is the same way and outperforms anything AMD has to offer by a decent amount.

More cores DOES NOT mean better game performance at all.
