That should save you about £30/40 then selling your 1055t (around £70/75 would leave you minimum £100...the FX-8320 is only £120 with a bit of luck , you get a good deal on the motherboard and sell the 1055 high leaving you around £115...sell your motherboard as faulty (not as untested thats just plain scamming) and you should get a good price for it (explaining the faults)
If you can net your self a free CPU upgrade. maybe even make yourself some cash.
Not a bad idea. I'll look into it.

Sorry I had to say that.
As far as I can see, he just picked the most expensive mobo he could find. A strategy which a few months back would have led him to buy the 3960X over the 3970X because the 3960X was more expensive Edited by Moragg - 10/13/13 at 8:46am
