The 965be Quad is a great chip as well, it's what I upgraded from to the 8 core FX and both overclocked like crazy with great cooling.

Maybe not the combo you're looking for but just worth posting anyway !
I saw that last night and made note of the CPU and Motherboard. Thanks.

You are right but I want to build an AMD system.

Thanks.
Typical discouragement !

Look it is just as simple to build AMD as it is Intel Cheaper by so much as well

If you are going to build AMD get a decent 990fx board that doesn't need to be super priced get one of the newer FX chips 6300 /8320 8gb ram decent gpu etc....you will be good to go

In the end when it comes to Gaming or common task there is no real big difference ,I know plenty of Intel rigs that AMD rigs would blow out the water so with that being said AMD will not disapoint you and this is not a sales pitch lol

Intel is not the PC savior, I don't know why people are always trying to push that bag

If you do go for AM3+ look at the 970 based boards if only going to use a single card, if SLI/Crossfire is a consideration look at the 990 based boards. For the most part that is the only real difference between the two,

AMD 900 chipset series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

and can save a few $$. As for which manufacturer, comes down to price and whatever other features may be available.

Again something like this, check out ASRock as well and of course ASUS if they are affordable?

MSI 970A-G46 AMD 9 Series Motherboard - ATX, Socket AM3+, AMD 970 Chipset, 2133MHz DDR3 (O.C.), SATA III (6Gbs), RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, SLICrossFireX Ready at TigerDirect

Mate this with the 965be or any of the FX chips but why not just grab the 8120fx and be done with things, but you'll want a good GPU which is where the APU has it over the FX but it offers nowhere to upgrade to !

Just an example.

yeah the 6300 is abeast of a chip, the sweetspot between i5 and i3, better than all i3s (not singethterad) and not as good as i5

They are not bad combos, but try and avoid anything with the older 760/710 chipsets on them unless you only want SATA 2 and USB2, unless the manufacturer has slapped a 3rd party chip on it as the SB710 doesn't support either.

Agreed but you can always add a USB 3.0 adapter card for cheap.
