Ok guys I am going to build a new system gutting some of what I already have.

ITS AMD SO NO INTEL PLEASE.


Cool Master CM Strom Trooper Series Case
Gigabyte GA990FXA-UD7
G. Skill Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1866 8GB
Western Digital WD 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb

Corsair GS800 800wat Power supply (got it)
Power Color 7850 HD 2GB Graphics (got it)

Now the question do I go with a AMD 8350 or for the same price go with a AMD8150 that comes with a self contained CPU water cooler.
I dont think I will be overclocking and the case should keep it cool without WC but like your input.

Or do I just save some bank and buy a lower priced chip and go with a SSD for my OS.

Its more power efficient , runs cooler and OC's a little better

unfortunately you get to be an expert here by posting a lot , and not by building a lot of computers .

I can recall laughing very loudly when an "expert" ASKED how he could remove the hard drive cage from his case
