Tags: CPUs AMD Motherboards Last response: September 14, 2012 6:57 PM in CPUs Share cadderly September 6, 2012 2:22:19 PM I Bought an AMD Motherboard (M5A97) AM3+ I would like ti buy CPU like AMD FX-8150 3.4Ghz. (189.99) I play some games like SWTOR and do programmation (visual studio, etc). I like the eight-core possiblilité but it's the good choice ? I know you are so amazing to know the best stuffwith the right price. I'll wait for idea or confirmation. Thanks.

For highly-threaded tasks the FX 8120or 8150 are both great choices. Share nsouter853 September 6, 2012 8:46:54 PM +1 to 8120 with an overclock.
