i3 3220 or FX 6100 - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
FX 6300 is not available in India. The FX 8350 is withing my budget. Should I go for it.

CPU : AMD FX 8350
Motherboard : Asus M5A97
GPU : Sapphire AMD/ATI HD 7850 2GB
PSU : Corsair VS650 650 Watt

Is this config good?

get some closed loop liquid cooling or a good air cooler; overclock it to 4.6+ ghz and you will be happy.

The M5A97 doesn't have that many phases... its still a very decent board that's sinked. what are your other options? Do you have the 970a-ud3?

If you can afford the 8350 and it's available where you are, then by all means go that route. The 8350 is a guaranteed 4 GHz right out of the box, no need to overclock to get there, and Vishera CPU's are much faster than any Bulldozer.

With the M5A97, there are about three revisions. The M5A97 EVO is the one to have. If it's one of the others, that AsRock 970 Extreme4 you mentioned might be a better choice.
