(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-01-18 22:12 EST-0500) Even though 8GB is more than enough for games, i put inside 16GB because the Motherboard does not allow for more than 2 sticks of ram(DIMMs) of course this does not allow for SLI/CFX and no OCing so i had to try to get the best out of the GPU to allow it to play for a while. Also FX 6300 can also be the base of the build if you are looking to get a cheaper/better GPU build m 0 l butremor January 23, 2013 10:06:49 AM in that budget bouldbox's build is the best if you really want overlocking and dual graphics option you need spend more m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
