What do you guys think?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Will be upgrading from i5-650. I do plan to overclock down the road.

What I will be using it for:
  • Gaming
  • Streaming Live gameplay
  • Small video editing
  • Listening to music
  • Watching Blu-Ray movies



Is it better to go with this?
FX-8350 Combo
Or
Go with the FX 63xx series with the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 instead?

Thanks!

Nice combo. I would get it. FX-8350 is well know to hit 5ghz with a good cooler.

I would go with the FX8350, it looks like a good deal. You will also have a lot of fun overclocking if you are using that custom loop.

So we got two votes for the 8350. Any more before I pull the trigger?

Thanks! thumb.gif

I was also looking at the 6300 as my next processor, but I know I would always wonder if I should have gone with the 8320-8350. Newegg had a combo sale that ended on the 16th for the 8350 & Asus Sabertooth 990FX MB for $349 and couldn't let that slide away...

8350 gets my vote....

if money is not an issue get the 8350.

if it is...get the 8350 (at least in that bundle you wont save but perhaps 10% getting the 63xx)


I'm not saying the 63xx is a bad chip by any means, I've built several rigs with it and it really is a nice chip for all the things you mentioned...BUT the 83xx is just better at them all esp if your Overclocking
