So I just bought an fx 8120 and was wondering which mb and radeon hd series are good along with it for online shooter game. I am not a player of cod or bf, (but i may try it later)just regular mmofps but I want a fast gaming experience on high resolution.

I was thinking of a M5A88-V EVO? I got a geforce 9800gt 1gb already and my bro told me not to waste money if i got a good graphic card already but I was just wondering, if i didnt have this, which hd series is better with the 8120? Hd 7000 or 6000 series, and be specific please.

My budget at max is 200.

Thanks,
Michael

First off it was stupid of you buying FX 8120, it's a very bad gaming CPU.

Best bet would be either GTX 660 or Radeon 7850 for the 200$, both great at 1080p resolution.

Just to answer your 7000 or 6000 series question, you would want the 7000 series due to the better performance and lower power consumption.

Yea I know I was going to buy intel i5 2500k but Im low on the budget (paid bills ]:)  so I wanted to buy a processor that cost less so I can buy the mb, gpu, and psu all together.

And yea I was looking to buy the evga geforce gtx 660 ti but then i wouldnt be able to buy a motherboard. I want gaming pc but not spend too much on it though because I only play like 9-14 hrs a week.

GTX 660 (non-ti) should be able around 200$, so when you max wanna spend 200$, then why not get the best you can for that Money?

i5-2500k is quite expensive I agree. But you could have choosen at least FX 6300 it offers way better gaming than the FX 8120 performance and I do believe it's cheaper.

Aww

Anyway, I am looking to spend 200 for both mb and gpu. What is good gpu for under 100$ or should I just use my 9800gt 1gb?

Asus M5A99X EVO AM3+: $130 before $20 rebate

EVGA GeForce 9800 GT HDMI 1GB 256-bit DDR3: $70

The CM Hyper 212+ has been $20 as of late if you want to really crank that FX-8120 Bulldozer. Don't let the fan boys tell you otherwise, it's a fine chip, and can be tweaked for gaming or multi-threaded apps.

There are 8 total BIOS profiles you may set on the 990X.

i use a radeon 6670 in my phenom 2 sig rig, got metro 2033 free from steam yesterday from following a link on here, and even with my low specs im running it in 1440x 900 dx 9 med details and its fine, metro is apparently a highly demanding game and its giving playable frame rates, a low of 23 high of 47 so i would say that say a radeon 7750 available for £100 is plenty of card if your not crazy into gaming hope that helps,
ps my motherboard supports your cpu and im looking into finding one on sale in jan, how is your experience so far?
