    on the AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Newegg) can that be put with the
    Asus GRYPHON Z87 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($164.99 @ Amazon) or does it have to be intel?
  9. that asus mb is pinned for intel 1150 cpu only.
    SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0 is the amd version of that mb but it older mb.
  10. I want to go with AMD for the cpu. and i'd like to go with asus for the motherboard.
  11. SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0
