  1. Please read this and gve more details in the format given:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/353572-31-build-upgrade-advice

    We at least need to know what your budget is, what country you are located in (so we know what sites to use, and which currency), what the computer will be used for (gaming?), and if you already have an OS/keyboard/mouse etc...

    That motherboard and CPU will not work together, that CPU is an AMD sock AM3+, while that motherboard is an Intel Socket 1155... Not at all compatible. If you are dead set on that AMD CPU then you will need an AM3+ motherboard, although i would suggest getting an Intel cpu instead, in which case that is a good motherboard. i would also recommend staying away from Aerocool, you could definitely find a better brand. Especially that PSU, it might be cheap but it's also probably crap...

    i live in the netherlands so the curency is euro's. and can you tell me which motherboard i should use instead cause i only want to use the amd fx 8350
  3. I would say this one would be a good motherboard for you since you won't be getting another card for SLI/crossfire
