Extremely irritated right now. I already own everything I would need to build an ITX system with an FX 6300 cpu out of my old computer, the only thing I'm lacking is a motherboard. And I cannot for the life of me find an ITX AM3+ motherboard.
Do they just not exist? It seems kind of silly to me that they still produce FM2 motherboards for the APU systems but none for the FX series...
I can't afford to buy an i5. And an i3 simply won't cut it for what I need the system to do.
Does anyone know of any? Or am I flat out of luck?
Nope, either get a lga 1155 mini itx board with the i3 or i5, or an amd apu FM2 cpu and mini itx board.
Really can't afford an i5 without buying one used which I don't dare to do lol.
Guess I'll have to get an AMD A8 or something like that for now.. I run a lot of virtual machine applications and the i3 won't do the job since you can't hyperthread those. So the quad core AMD beats the dual core Intel in those scenarios.
