In the end, nobody can decide what he will be happy with except for him. All we can do is give reasonable recommendations that blends what he needs with what his budget is.
Hey. Unless I bring benchmarks in play, I don't even see a difference between my A10 and an i5-3570k outside of Flight Simulator X performance. That's the only lone application that makes a huge difference noticeable.

But my point stands, and it's been proven. You wouldn't be able to tell the difference if brands were not mentioned. For all you know it would be incorrect to assume that because a system is seemingly faster it must be intel. That you yield a lot of surprises and possibly conspiracy theories that my hypothetical tests were rigged Hahahaha.

Anyway, in all seriousness. Depending on what you do, and what you want to do, and how many computers you have to compare, you'll notice, and care for the performance difference between platforms.

It is correct to assume that an Intel Core i5-3570K would outperform the AMD FX-4300........it's not a guess, an opinion or a "conspiracy theory". It is a stronger processor bottom line. But we shouldn't even be talking about a 3570K because it is out of his budget. If you re-read my posts, I am suggesting an AMD product within his budget.......NOT an Intel.

Also, I don't know if your post was sarcastically trying to say I don't know what I'm talking about or if you were just being asinine, but it's not helping the OP. Don't turn this into something unproductive.

Please keep this conversation cool, I don't want to see bad blood grow out of this thread.
Anyways I won't be buying it this month. I plan to set aside money every month. 100 per month/ 20sh per week. In about two months I will have put aside enough money for this. When that time gets here I will probably think of getting the six core vs the 4th core. Anyways I already know that I will be going with either the FX 4300 or FX 6300. At the moment I am leaning towards the 4300 but that could change.

I was looking into this motherboard opinions? Will this be enough for me, what are the downfalls or places this motherboard is cutting corner into?

No no no no.. I guess you are not understanding the point I am trying to get at. But that's fine really. It doesn't even apply to your opinion whatsoever.In other words, my initial comment was not directed at you at all.

Just don't try to take this personal because it's yet another AMD and Intel comparison will you?

Thank you.

Edit: Chris, that motherboard should do you fine. You did mention that you already have a GPU running correct? That motherboard has no integrated video. I find it fun how it has a COM port. I have to admit I rarely see those in ''modern'' motherboards.
