Is it a good choice ?

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.

    8120 would probably be a better choice because it costs less and can be overclocked to the same specs as the 8150 with ease.

    For highly-threaded tasks the FX 8120or 8150 are both great choices.
  2. +1 to 8120 with an overclock. (if you are going AMD)
  3. Hi :)

    AMD 1100T if you can find one...

    All the best Brett :)
  4. You dont need 8 cores. Switch to an i5-3350p at almost the same price.

    I have an AMD motherboard, I think it's impossible ?
  6. I would have personally gone with the 8120 due to the cheaper price and the only difference being 200mhz but the 8150 will do just fine.
