I like to build it with AMD FX8320 or 8350 and case Cooler Master Haf Xb Evo. I don't know much about case but that one look great. I need some idea from ur guys. Thank you.

Approximate Purchase Date: End of March.

Budget Range: 800 include shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Networking and Graphic Design.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: No

Location: Honolulu, Hawaii

Overclocking: No , I don't want get risk.

dude, why not buy a e5200, overclock it, (it overclocks like a beast) save money, and call it a day. it should be enough for your needs. in single threading performance a e5200 is faster, and it's only clocked at 2.5 ghz. plus muilti threaded performance is better on a dual cpu system not a single cpu system. you can pick one (e5200) up for ebay for less then anything. i would suggest you spend time on overclocking to get maximum performance. i mean i was laughing at how fast it was at 4.3 ghz. plus you can spend more what matters, like your graphics card. again, i think that's wasting money to go with that option when you can have something better.

Maybe because it's late, but I have no idea what alienworkshop is talking about. Where would you even buy that CPU from 6-7 years ago, today?

Anyway, if you're going to be buying at the end of March, parts you pick now will not be set in stone. Sales come and go and prices change. But for your budget, here's what your build could/might look like:

dude, games are graphics bound anyways. it's not hard to find a e5200 it's a fact that your not going to get much benefits from a not so noticeable faster cpu. a e5200 overclocked btw, will decimate that cpu by a long shot stupid. so i don't know what your trying to get at. i even had a discussion with someone that the graphics count way more then a cpu, he has a pentium d for crying out loud with a good graphics card and can play games good, and your better off spending the money on a graphics card, cause your not going to see much difference and your going to bottleneck performance.

also, you can find countless e5200's on ebay.

if he doesn't want to risk it that's fine, but he should be aware that the next to nothing priced e5200 will decimate that cpu when overclocked properly. and it's known to overclock very well and come out on top, many people reccomend it. maybe you never tried a solution such as mine, i only buy what is best for the money at the time and it works. when i need to upgrade, so be it. so obviously your ignorant on three accounts. knowing where to find an e5200 and not knowing that games are more graphics bound then anything. your reccomending a slow processor for 158 dollars, dude, seriously, even at stock the e5200 will come out on top, even if it's that old, yeah really...

i also find it very funny that e5200 comes out on top of that cpu you reccomended, wow, just wow. are you sure you know what your talking about? cause obviously you don't.

again, if he doesn't want to risk it that's fine, btw, the e5200 comes out on top for performance over that cpu even if you don't overclock, and you can save A LOT of money for your graphics card which is most impotant for your needs.

so, okay he changed his mind, that's fine, but don't go throwing around false information if yoiu don't know what your talking about. i was simply giving him the best alternative cause he asked for help.

edit: also, even if you did reccomend him a faster processor, which would cost more, it's a myth that you need a faster processor for it's time to play games properly, it's graphics bound. so now you learned something, good for you.

Calm down. I appreciate your suggest. Never use AMD and do OC before. I will take a look at it. Seem like all parts are more expensive to order from Hawaii cause shipping. I did most under 800 but in the end it total more than 950 #.#

Benchmarks or GTFO. Here's mine.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/698?vs=66

At stock, there's no way an E5200 would "decimate" an FX8320. And there's no way an E5200 would overclock to "decimate" overclocked FX8320. . And while games tend to be pretty graphics bound, there are plenty of CPU intensive games that require a good CPU. Thirdly, we're entering a gaming scene where developers are likely to start taking advantage of more cores.

Seriously, are you just trolling?

I change a little bit his idea. This one seem good with higher GPU. But i don't know if the mainboard work good with other part.

I would honestly go with the Asus board or a Gigabyte board, MSI is known to be a bit less reliable..

Is it okay to use PSU 600W to OC FX8320 + Estimated Wattage: 484W ? Does it enough power ?

Yes you will be able to OC with that PSU, however not that much as the Hyper 212 won 't be adequate for that. It still remains the best cooler for non-OC and low OC levels, however.

I don't understand your mean ? Hyper 212 is not good enough for OC or the power is not enough for it to work well ?

The PSU is fine but not the best overclocker. Also, the Hyper 212 won't be able to do HEAVY overclocking like a much more expensive air or water cooler could do. But, it still stands as the best cooler for its price.
