i looked but found nothing for the 8350 having dep slat or hav. only thing i found was a command prompt to figure out if u have it lol
But yes the 8350 is the budget choice from the i7 and beats an i5 for what ur doing, but again i have no idea on the features lol
The 460gtx is not a bad gpu, but for ultra settings for games or other graphical uses maybe an upgrade like a 7870/7950 or 660ti or 670gtx
Does ATI play nicer with linux now adays?
