Thanks for the reply
So I did some research and found that the fx 8350 was the same price as the i5 3450! Now that's awesome! 8 cores!
Since I'm now going with the fx 8350, I was wondering which motherboard would be good.
Here's what I found:
ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard ($95)
MSI 990FXA-GD65V2 Desktop Motherboard - AMD 990FX Chipset - Socket AM3+ ($129)
Which would be better? I couldn't find a 790 chipset one, so I'm guessing you meant 970. With a cheaper motherboard, I can probably use the saved money and get a 2GB 7850. What do you think?
