Need cpu to finish build

still need a cpu and mobo to finish off build, any suggestions? have about 130$ to spend on cpu but why spend it all if its not going to make a huge difference in mmorpgs like gw2 wvw.

current build.

    You can go for an amd cpu (vishera) not zambezi. Bulldozer isnt much good but piledriver would work well in yoru budget i think the 6300 is 150 which is 6 cores so if you can whop out $20 you got a very nice budget cpu

    if you want to play gw2, buy an intel cpu as any AMD cpu will get less performance than even extremely cheap intel cpus. The i3 3220 would be pretty good for the build.

    Not all amd performances get less performance the pd 8320 and 8359 get equal performance as the 3570 so please know your facts

    i need to be able to fit both a mother board and cpu into budget, i can spare maybe 100$ on the cpu, with 60 on mobo
  7. get the 1gb 7850 if you are looking to save money and get at least a i3 2100.

    The 3rd gen i3 would be a great choice it still has fine performance and most of these are better than most amd processors.

    Also 130$ is just for the cpu you forgot a key component the motherboard... a simpler h67 or even z77 would be fine for this build but the i3 & mono together will cost more than 130$ just pointing this out incase you did not realize

    Recommended: i3 2100 and an h67m incase you only have a 130$ budget for both

    Best of luck with your build!
