    Screw the Caviar Green go for Blacks, or at least Blue...

    For about $300 consider moving to a 6 core AMD

    for ~200 go for the MSI 890FX

    theres combo deals for 6 core and 870/ 890 boards out there

    radeon 5850 ~300

    btw where are you getting your prices - they seem a lil out dated... (not to be rude)
  2. Its all in NZ dollars you would not believe how hard it is to find things out here.
  3. would MSI 870A FUZION AM3 AMD 870 SATA3 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard be OK its my first computer and i don't want it getting too ridiculous. From what i have read a quad processor would be fine for me
  4. Depends on the price, but in general that's a very nice board.
  5. The MSI 870A FUZION AM3 AMD 870 SATA3 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard or the GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
