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.

Sigh figures.

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.

Blahhhh!
