hello
im finally getting my build ready for my new gaming rig but i am stuck on two choices

i can get amdfx 8320 and a £100ish motherboard or
amd fx 8350 and a £70 ish motherboard
I want to overclock so this is what my build looks like at the moment
so my options are
coolermaster 212 evo £27
ddram (not sure ) 8gb £50-60
gpu- powercolor myst radeon 7870 2gb £156
seagate barrucuda 1tb £48
Corsai 600 w bronze but theres a modular and non modular, what the difference

So which motherboard would be best for performance overclock and worth the money
THis maybe? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GA-990FXA-UD3-Optical-...

From what I saw gigabyte makes good boards so I think it's a good option.
You can go with like an AMD FX 6350 BE and have a bit more headroom in terms of price for the MBO

Just make sure the motherboard supports that CPU


i think ill go with gigabyte 990fx £98 and amd 8320 £114 :)
