Halfway done with my friends pc. Now the important parts. Cpu/MB/RAM. She is a beginning gamer and wouldn't be able to tell the difference in hardcore graphics so I got her a Gigabyte 660. Now the question is, which cpu should I go with? Something less than $150. Thinking one of these...

1.Intel i3-6100
2.Intel i5-4590
3.AMD FX-6300
4.AMD FX-8320

Thanks for your help guys.

She didnt want to spend more than $150 for the gpu. Was the 660 for 65 or a 950, wasnt worth the xtra money. She'll be fine with this for now.
