Hi all... been looking for a CPU/MB combo for around $200-$250. I've looked at the AMD 965 and 955 BEs, the AMD FX4100, and the A10-5800k. Those seem to be the better options in my price range. I'm not looking to overclock, I don't game a whole lot, but I'd still like to have a quad core. I've read so many different things (good and bad) about all of these CPUs that my head has grown a full hat size larger. All opinions would be extremely helpful! I do have a Microcenter nearby. Thanks!
