DarkSable November 19, 2012 7:26:16 PM ^It'll cost more in the long run, due to increased power draw and thus a beefier power supply needed. This is for gaming, yes? Be happy without a SSD - it won't help your framerates, just load times. Outlander_04 November 19, 2012 7:50:04 PM Use either an of the 83XX processors They are faster and more power efficient than the older 81XX series If that doesnt fit your budget then the FX 6300 is a good alternative and will be quite close in most gaming situations . Its defintely better than the 8120 and usually matches the 8150 The asrock 970 extreme4 motherboard is great value too for the features offered http://www.overclock.net/t/1144067/amd-990x-970-am3-mot...
