What Motherboard and Processor should I get?

Hello,

I recently bought a geforce gtx 750 ti.
My computer currently uses an fm2 socket motherboard and an apu processor.
Things just aren't right becuase i'm getting low frames on games like league of legends which shouldn't be hard at all for a 750 ti to handle. What are your suggestions for a motherboard and proccesor to run with this card.

Thank you!

  1. You don't need to spend much. An FX-6300 and an ASRock 970 Pro3 should do the job nicely for under $200:
    AMD FX-6300 - $120:

    It's too bad you got an nVidia card because you'd need a 990FX motherboard for SLI, this one just supports Crossfire. However, one card will run perfectly and this board has all the goodies you could possibly want. Cheers!

    You don't need a 990 to use dual cards.

    FX 6300 \ MSI 970 Gaming motherboard which is SLI \ Crossfire ready and has a 6+2 power phase design.

    Thank you!
  4. Your welcome.

    Thanks for posting on the forum.
  5. It looks like MSI managed to get SLI to work on a non-990FX motherboard. Good find!
