Ok working up to my first build YAY! Been a life-long dream of mine. Not that I've never had the motivation or time, just never the money. Anyway to the issue at hand. I've been looking at the AMD FX-4100 Black Edition for my CPU.
I've also been looking at the ASUS M5A97 line of Motherboards. The CPU Support List for all of them specifies an
AMD FX-4100 FD4100WMW4KGU
I can barely find this exact CPU online. But I find a billion AMD FX-4100 FD4100WMGUSBX
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE!?!?!?!?!!?
As far as I can find the only difference is the L2 Cache on the FD4100WMW4KGU is 1024 compared to 1000 on the FD4100WMGUSBX
There is approximately a $30-40 difference. Do I absolutely have to go with the more expensive version because it's on the motherboard's CPU list?
