You mean the 6300? I'd certainly go with that CPU, probably the best value of any CPU out there! I don't know about microcenter but the fx 6350 is coming out very soon at exactly the same price as the 6300, but with microcenter you might as well stick with the 6300. As for the motherboard its good, just remember no SLI support for if you ever go to nvidea but shouldn't matter! Good luck!
