Hello all, Looking to build a new gamming rig. Been looking at the FX 8350 and the 4670K CPUs. Would like some info on what are some MBs and ram that would accommodate these CPUs. Overclocking will be done These two chips were recommended buy a local shop. Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Well, both chips are great for gaming (I own i5 4670k), but you usually want to match gpu and processor based on your budget. Also, your Motherboard can vary, but is also dependent on price. Do you want to sli/Cf? Which Motherboard features do you need? As for ram cards, these are pretty easy to select, just get the right amount of pins (usually 240 pins) and select the cards with dual channel 8 gb (2x4gb) at the highest speed without inflating price (2133mhz is the sweet spot, just make sure your Motherboard supports it).

To add to the above.
Use to help you narrow down part compatibility.

Figure out your budget and what stores you have access to, there are LOADS of builds posted for various budgets on this forum.
