Okay, here's what I'm looking at, please advise me if this is not the right options in your opinions:
AMD FX-8120 8-Core Black Edition Processor Socket AM3+ - FD8120FRGUBOX $160
RAM Corsair 8 GB Vengeance Red PC3-15000 1866mHz 240-pin Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9R $56
(Though I am thinking I will probably want to double this to be on the safe side = $112)
Asus Socket AM3+ M5A78L-M/USB3 w/ AMD 760G/SB710 Chipset, 4xDDR3 1866/1800, ATI HD3000 Video with VGA DVI and HDMI Onboard, PCI Express x16, 2x USB 3.0, 6x SATA 6Gbps $53
But I can't figure out what case I am supposed to get for this mobo. Will most cases fit? How do I tell?
