Thanks everyone, i'm either going to go with the Phenom 2 x4 black edition, or fx 6300. Im definitely leaning towards the fx 6300 just because ive spent enough that skimping on the cpu isnt something i really want to do. lol
I'm always a future safeguarder, if you know what I mean. The phenom's are truly good CPUs, but as the future comes and better GPUs are coming out, the phenom's WILL bottleneck. Invest now and spend less later.
(says the safeguard in me, haha)
