Hey all,

I'm seeing some good deals on the new FX-8120 CPU, some of them bundled with the Gigabyte 990. I realize that this is way too powerful for most of the gaming and stuff I'd be using the system for, but I could get these for less than the i5-2500k builds I'm seeing are more popular. Is this a seriously bad idea? Are there reasons the AMD is so cheap? Compatibility issues, stability, etc?
Looking for any/all advice. I'd be willing to tinker with the system, but I am new to building, so it'll be a learning experience.
