the I3 is no doubt better than the FX-6300 by each single core because AMD's architecture is not that great.
the deal here is that it's a Two core (W/ 4 threads) VS a SIX core CPU.
i have these interesting benchmarks to prove my point: AMD Vishera FX-6300 & FX-4300 Review - Page 12
this is a build on a budget, and if
it's only for gaming i'll go for the I3 and add the money saved on a step up 7770 graphic card.
but i can totally understand if he rather have the six cored FX-6300.
