I have a Intel Core 2 duo system and Just pricing AMD parts. I have a Vid card that is good for now. What CPU and Processor is a wise investment

    FX-8370 and a Gigabyte motherboard with the 970X or 980FX chipset.

  • I do believe the AMD guy meant the 990FX because the 980FX isn't a thing..... ;)

    For the money I have seen the FX6300 on sale for under $100 which is phenomenal for the money. If you are planning to build AM3+ you are almost forced to build full ATX. Not a problem if that was what you had in mind because there are plenty of great full featured ATX boards for the AM3+, but if you want something Micro or Mini not so much.

    I have a gigabyte 990FX board and it seems to do well for the price I paid. Paired with an 8350 and it can handle pretty much anything I throw at it....
