i dont wanna go over $700 even for 20bucks:)  thank you tho.

so should i get fx 8320 instead of 8350 and radeon 7950 instead of 7870 ghz ?

also i might get 2nd graphic card after a while. and last question is , is that really makes difference spending $120 instead of $75 on motherboard ? Thank you:)

OfCourse get a 8320. It is a damn fine CPU for gaming if you are on budget. But if you want to go a bit more cheap then the 6300 offers similar gaming performance. Since gaming mostly depends on single thread performance which is almost equal on both the CPUs

Get a 7950, you would love it. It is a beast. But if you go for 6300 then you can extend the GPU to the 7970 and it still won't be a botteneck.

A better motherboard helps if you want to overclock, if not then grab a MSI 970A G43 motherboard, no problem at all. It would not at all be a problem if you do not want to overclock.

If you find this answer useful be sure to select it as the best answer as it would help me and any other person who is looking for similar answers.

7870 is somewhat a compromise when compared to the 7950. It would play any game at 1080p but you might need to turn down the settings a little bit. You cannot play games completely maxed out with the 7870 but with the 7950 you can play many games at 1080p maxed out.

I would keep the 7950 with 8320 anyday.

And if you are going with the 990FX motherboard that i suggested then you can overclock the 8320 and get performance just like or even better than the 8350. So if you are going with the 990FX motherboard, i do not see why you do not want to get a 8320.

Go for 8320 + 7950 It is better.
