Wish 2 upgrade my CPU from Intel i3 2100 to AMD FX 8350 & MoBo also... Suggestions Needed...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I wish to upgrade my current Intel DH61WW MoBo to ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 & current CPU Core i3 2100 3.1GHz to AMD FX 8350... Will my change from Intel to AMD b worth it...? I consider AMD as its a cheap & best deal...

Current config ::
i3 2100 3.1GHz
Intel DH61WW MoBo
Geforce GTS450 2gb DDR3
(planning to upgrade into a GTX660 or HD7850 as per my budget)
Seasonic S12ii 520w PSU
CM HAF 912 Combat side panel window


Also suggest me which GPU i should chose from above mentioned... thank u...

Go with the AMD. You will see a performance increase. Others may have better processor options for you so wait around and see what they have to say. I would stick with the GTX 660. I had driver issues with the HD7970, but I don't have personal experience with the 7850. Good luck.

I would save a little bit and grab a used Sandy bridge i5 for under $160, and then use the extra money to get a better GPU or an SSD.

Yes that 8350 will definitely be better than your i3 although you could save a few bucks with the 8320. Or if you aren't big into overclocking, dropping in a cheap locked i5 into your current mobo might be ideal and the cheapest option.

Although what is your budget for this cpu/mobo/gpu upgrade?

Between the two processors you are deciding between, the AMD will. Your PSU will not have much to do with the overclock, so don't worry about that.
