Or is there better choice? Intel is not an option at the moment, because i'm kind of victim of AM3+ MOBO Price pool is around 100-150~€/$ E: Mostly what i do with computer is gaming / record my gaming / little photoshopping / Little video editing More about : update wait athlon 630 4170 Rockdpm a b à CPUs March 23, 2012 12:25:53 PM Get a Phenom II they love a AM3+ board. especially with that UEFI Bios. the FX series is a disapointment for budget gamers.
