also what do you think of them? building my first PC just for playing diablo 3. for years to come. low budget. i don't do much multitasking so faster is more important to me then how meany things it can run.

  1. No, that motherboard will not support the FX-4170. The board is limited to 95w processors. The FX-4170 is a 125watt processor.

    This board will support the FX-4170 though: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157292
  2. awsome thankyou so much. whats do you think about the 2? is the 40$ worth the speed up?
  3. I'd be more inclined to go with the FX-4170 myself, but whether it's worth the cost difference is up to you.
