dont know if you need any ddr-3 ram or if you had it. i added it to both builds. the 6300 fx is a faster cpu for a little more money. if you can wait the newer amd fm2 cpu are dropping and should be 20 percent faster then the older ones.

Thanks for the videos. I initially was considering the evga gtx 760 2gb but it seems that the radeon hd 7850 is much more affordable for my budget and will allow me to play bf4 with around 50 fps which was what i wanted. Thanks again for your help.
