My little nephew plays WoW on a Fx-6300 and R9-280. Just watched him raid Emerald Dream and he only gets about 20-25 fps at best with everything on low. He's only 17 and no job, so I want to get him something that's fairly cheap.
Will he see a big improvement with an i3 6100 since Intel has more powerful cores even though it's a dual with hyperthreading, and WoW mostly uses 2 cores? WoW is really the only cpu intensive game he plays. Has anyone else gone from a 6300 to an i3, and if so how was it? Also if he wants to upgrade in the future, the mobo I get him he'll be able to throw an i5/i7 in down the road.
