    Wasn't sure if you needed OS which I included anyway and also why not consider AMD?
  2. Oh yeah i forgot about the OS, OS needed. Thank you for that. I don't mind AMD as long as it is reliable. Would it be cheaper?
  3. Well the FX 8350 is $30 cheaper than an i5-3570 and it performs at pretty much the same standard.
  4. Oh okay. Do you know a good motherboard that would work with that? Please and thank you.
  5. The Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 is a very good board and also fits your price range.
