would the extra ~40 bucks for a i3-6100 be worth it? Just wanting to play games such as R6S and overwatch on medium-high 1080p

Yes. The i3 blows the FX processor away especially the new Skylake. Definitely fo for the i3.

Get a Corsair 450 watt CXM, much better and beats anything its competing with and is only a bit more. The i3 is a good amount better than the FX 6300.

Thanks! just one question, is there any major disadvantages with going micro atx over atx other than just being smaller?
