Hi I am noob when it comes to building a pc on my own, so my config for the build is a MSI 970A-G46 mobo with AMD FX8350 and for the graphic card I was thinking of nvidia GTX 760 4GB will this work fine or would it be a problem?? and I am also a bit confused between HD 7950 & GTX 760 4GB which one would you recommend (especially if you're budget gamer). Please help me out here. Thanks

The MSI G45 was one of the worst ever made and the G46 is barely any better , both have below average and power and thermal design , therefore not a good fit for the FX8320 or 8350.

ModernWarfare you need to give credit to overclock.net for the doc.

The motherboard has a bad vrm
you cant overclock on the 8350 on that motherboard
the motherboard has heating issues....
and i think that it will bottleneck the gtx 760 4gb a little bit

so the best motherboard to get the full pleasure of the overclocked 8350 is the ASUS M5a97 r2 mobo
*do not confuse with the LE version

Thanks a lot that really helped I think Ill go with ASUS M5a97 r2 mobo but could you also tell me what PSU should I go with a 650 watt or a 700 watt?? i might add in another graphic card in the near future so, if you have any advice regrading this it would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

On the page...they have said that minimum 500w is required...

So i think you will be fine with the 650w PSU...

Happy gaming!

i know this an an old post but i had the same setup and now i upgraded to an asrock 990fx because of vrm issues sent the board back and they gave me a fresh one but i had my 6300 overclocked to 4.8 on the board and 8320 to 4.3 but when i upgraded to the 990 board i was able to get 5.3 stable off the 6300 and but still having issues passing the 4.3 threshold with my 8320
