£249.35
Asus Sabertooth Z77 Intel Z77 Socket 1155 Ivybridge Ready Motherboard £179.72

The motherboard and CPU are not compatible with each other. If you want the AMD FX-8350, then the correct Asus Sabertooth model would be the Asus Sabertooth 990FX.

Hi, is there any reason you've suggested AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor oppose to the AMD FX-8350?

There is nearly no performance difference, its just clocked 3,5ghz instead of 4,0ghz. You can overclock it easily...
