Hey guys

I was planning on upgrading my budget rig with an FX 6300 for both gaming and mutlitasking I reckon it would be a great bang for the buck, my old mobo died on me :(  I managed to rescue the i3, but there doesn't seem to be much sense going with a dual core anymore. My case only allows microATX form factor and I am looking at the MSi 760GMA-P34 (FX) which would compliment my case well with USB 3.0 etc. But I am uncertain if the older chipset would set back the FX 6300. What are your thoughts?

Also the MSi 760GMA-P34 (FX) supports the FX 6300 out of the box. I am aware that there are no mATX motherboards avaliable with AMD 9 series chipset.

As always thank you for the help!

you usually want a 990 board but some of the older boards are compatible with the fx series you just have to check to mach sure it supports that cpu

The first thing I'd do is see if I could get my motherboard repaired/replaced under warranty but if not you'll want a MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) or ASRock 960GM/U3S3 as they're some of the few 760G motherboards with SATA3 and USB3 slots.

I wouldn't touch either of those boards as they do not have 125w cpu support.

What board does your i3 have? Might make sense to just upgrade it to an i5, if possible.

I am going to RMA my mobo and see if I can find a nice deal on a sandy/ivy bridge i5.

There are mATX boards compatible that work better...

The AMD FX 6300 is only a 95 watt CPU... Granted he wouldnt be able to upgrade but the 6300 is a solid CPU at the moment and wont need upgrading for a while
