    just get a i3 4130 and a B85 motherboard instead.
  4. 270X is the better choice there. And a true quad core like the 760K should beat out the 3 dual core packages on the FX6300, at least according to the benchmarks.

    Pentium G3258 is also a tempting option.
  5. glad you did have those

    put 212 EVO

    you can overclock the CPU to 4.4GHz and GPU to around 1GHz (after you learn to do it someday)
    it will surely add 20%-30% juice to the raw performance

    Radeon 270X is just an OCed 270. not worth it
  6. thanks guy`s and is the Pentium G3258 any good sorry im a total noob im just getting into pc building and would like to build my pc pretty soon
  7. Yeah, the g3258 is excellent! but the i3 or FX 6300 is better.
  8. alright thank you i will go with the fx 6300 build thanks so much!
  9. thx for picking solution :)

    i meant to post Radeon 270 in the build above. not 260X
