Hello Community,

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2 Micro ATX AM3+

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz 8 MB (64 bit 6-Core Processor)

RAM: 8 GB

I also prefer to add a SSD to my desktop, do you have some recommendations?


Except CPU, please keep the total price between $300 to $400. What CPU do you recommend?

    Sorry, I might express incorrectly. The CPU's price is not included. Please keep the RAM's, motherboard's and SSD's total prices within $500, I changed my mind.

    What CPU and SSD do you recommend?

    Sorry for the misleading, thank you so much!
