I'm planning to buy an AMD FX-6300 (AM3+ socket) processor and a Gigabyte GT730 OC Edition1GB GDDR5 (GV-N730D5OC-1GI) (PCI Express 2.0 x8 bus interface) graphic card but cant decide which Motherboard to pair it with.
I prefer Asus and gigabyte as manufacturer.
Any suggestions are welcome and Thanks in advance!

  1. The ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AMD Socket AM3+ should work just fine with your CPU and GPU, hope this helps!
  2. Don't buy a 4 year old dead end processor you will get better performance form a Intel i3 than a FX 6300.
  3. not everybody likes intel and a 6 cores cpu, cheap is hard to avoid, i3 might be good but is not a 6 cores cpu, could be faster on some loads but for games those 6 cores are great and cheap, the 970 is nice but a bit old chipset

    You have no idea what you're talking about.

    The i3 6100 will beat the fx6300 in every way.

    Wait for AMD to release their ZEN CPU's, or go now with something like i3-6100 and MSI BAZOOKA B150M.
    For GPU:
    What I could recommend is going on eBay and Craiglist, and try finding any of the following cards:
    GTX 580 Under $70
    GTX 670 Under $70
    GTX 680 Under $100
    GTX 770 Under $100
    GTX 780 Under $150
    GTX 780ti Under $200

    Radeon HD 7850 Under $50
    Radeon HD 7870 Under $70
    Radeon HD 7950 Under $80
    Radeon HD 7970 Under $100

    And for the power supply, I wouldn't hesitate much and pick up EVGA 600W 80+ Bronze for $40 on Amazon

    if a person is asking for a old chipset and a old cpu is under one or two circumstances

    1. is on a tight budget

    2. is a amd fanboy

    the i3 on any model available will be more expensive than the amd and only has two cores, the threads doesn't count when comparing 6 cores to two cores, it can win on some loads but it is more expensive than the amd

    before saying someone is wrong, consider why that person wrote what he wrote

    about zen, it won't be cheap, it will be perhaps 20% cheaper than the intel counterpart and won't be available untill perhaps next june, when talking about prices on a simple cheap model, also the manboard will be considerably expensive and will only use ddr4, another factor to consider when buying pc parts thinking on a pc that will be upgraded later

    buyig a used or new part on craigslist is a lottery, the decision on select the gt 730 is thinking on noise, power consumption, price and size, it is on most models a single slot card

    about evga, everybody buys them, but most review sites say interesting things about evga, feeling more secure when buying thermaltake or corsair, corsair is more silent btw

    when buying on a budget that kind of configurations makes alot of sense

    the only choice where i would change is the gt 730, but it cost more, if possible get a gtx 750, i am saving for buying one too, a major upgrade form the apu i have here on this fx 5350
