Just a quick question Tags: CPUs Product Last response: December 15, 2012 11:00 PM in CPUs Share zayzo December 15, 2012 10:40:32 PM Hello, i'm upgrading some parts on my computer right now, the parts being the cpu/mobo, gpu, and a heatsink. i will be getting the hyper 212 + and a gigabyte 7870 2GB. For the cpu/mobo combo i don't know what to choose. i have two choices depending on my budget which will be confirmed christmas day, the combos include the amd fx 6300 and the i5 3570k. with the amd i get an extra 8gb of ram for free. -6300 newegg combo link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... -i5 3570k combo link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... - i am just wondering if these are good choices.... also if i end up getting the fx 6300 will the 8gb of ram be compatible with ram from a different company but with the same specs? - thank you very much!

IS there any chance you live near a micro center? There is a sale on the 3570k: http://www.microcenter.com/product/388577/Core_i5_3570K... and then grab this board? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
