option 1 (http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/pdxJyf) option 2 (http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/LXYFsJ) option 3 (http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/KdFN6X)

have mostly found sources for the parts listed, just want to know what would be the better way to go for overclocking to play new rpg or rts games. also, it seems there are so many different amd fx chips that are so close in performance, if you can recommend a better one to me for the same cost or less, feel free. i was looking at the 860k and 880k, 6300, etc.. as for a gpu, i have a couple options locally for used ones between $150-200 cad, but am also open to suggestions in that price range. my ears are open, thanks!!!

Honestly, I recommend saving up a bit more to where you can get at least a Skylake i3 with a GPU. These 3 will most likely struggle a bit with the recent RPG's since there is no dGPU, even if the CPU is OC'd.

sorry to sound daft, but im not sure what a dgpu is.. do you mean i dont have a dedicated gpu? i am planning on purchasing a gpu card seperately.

thank you for your suggestion, the problem with that chip you linked to on ebay is it already would cost me $175 cad after the exchange rate/duties/shipping even if i won the auction at the current price but more likely by the time the auction is over it will be at least $200 which is out of my price range. thank you though!
