I am going to build my first computer in years and after doing a few weeks worth of research I have decided to go with a 760 twin frozer for my gpu. If I need to upgrade in the I think I will just go sli.
What I want to know is a good cpu for a sli 760 config. I have heard a lot of fx 8350 vs i5 3750k, but do I even need that? What is the best value cpu I can get that will not bottleneck a sli 760 config?

Here is a combo of the best CPU for the money with the best motherboard for the money with the best video card for the money:
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-core - $120

Motherboard: ASRock 970 Pro3 - $65

Video Card: Powercolor Radeon HD 7870XT 2GB MYST Edition (aka Radeon HD 7930) - $180 (-$30 mail-in-rebate)

All that for $365. You just can't go wrong here...lol (especially considering that you get the $30 mail-in-rebate on top of it all)
