Sounds like a sweet first build!

My first AMD/full build was far less interesting. I only had an Athlon II X2 3.0GHz, 4GB DDR3, and a Radeon 5570.

How did you decide on going with the FM2 platform vs the AM3 or AM3+? I've been curious about trying FM2 out, but haven't had the funds to start another build right now.

Good luck thumb.gif
