What Motherboard??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello Guys

So im putting a budget build together for a friend and i have chose to use the processor below:
AMD FX6-6300 Black Edition Vishera Six Core AM3+ 3.5GHz 14MB 95W

From what i have read i have also got a cooler as AMD's normal one is not up to scratch. (is this true??)

Could you reccomend a good motherboard for this?

does it have to be a 970 chipset? or could i go for a lower (cheaper one)

(The PC will be used for every day web, youtube and email)
*No overclocking, gaming etc tc he is 70 and only use's the pc when he has to but he wants a good one*

Any help would be great!!!

If Ram matters i have 2X4 GB 1600mhz Corsair Vengence if it matters thumb.gif

Thanks in advance for the help

this is the spec so far (no GFX card needed

if he will never overclock he can by with a mATX board

Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3, AMD 760G, 4+1VRM 125W TDP, SATA-3, USB 3.0 $54.99 after $10 rebate

990fx - x16,x8,x8 (dual x16 for Crossfire/SLI)
990x - x16,x8,x4 (x8 x8 for Crossfire/SLI)
970 - x16,x4 (x16 x4 for Crossfire)


But the FX-6300 really shines when overclocked.

Awsome thank you i will be following up tonight smile.gif see if i can find the parts in the UK smile.gif

There was one thing i noticed, a lot of the AMD boards dont have GFX ports (DVI HDMI etc) why is this i thought the new AMD processors have good built in graphics?
