£113 in the UK buying from say Scan would probably just about get me an Ahtlon 860k (£56) and an AsRock FM2 a88m extreme4+ (£50) which coincidentally is exactly the combination I have just built a machine from this week and I can say it performs very, very well for the price.

I don't quite understand the question? You already have a machine? Based on AM3? Or you just have a graphics card?

The FX 6300 is a solid budget buy for a gaming CPU if you already have an AM3 platform. If you are buying everything from scratch you have other options. The Athlon 860k is a very capable processor for a very low price (I've just built one and been testing it and it's very good). Also the Haswell I3's are going pretty cheap at the moment after Skylake has been released, depends what kit you already have really.

At the moment i have a build (bottleneck). I had a amd athlon 2 x2 220, 4 gb ram and gt210 but i bought a r7 265 and a 600W psu and an am3 (not am3+) motherboard mcp61m m3 v7.1. And i want to buy another motherboard and another cpu in my budget, a big one in my country but a small one in yours.

Well I don't know the market in your country so it's a little difficult to advise, but if you are asking if a 6300 and an Asus m5a97 board is a good combo then yes it is a good combination. In the UK I would class that as a low to medium budget build, I would also put into that category an Athlon 860k on the FM2 platform (which will be arguably as fast as the 6300, in the UK a bit cheaper) Or a Haswell i3 and a H81 board which in the UK would be roughly the same price as the 6300, m5a97 combo as the H81 boards are cheaper here.
