You can't really call the amd 8 cores as a true 8 core processor as there is only 4 dies

Where do you live? What is your budget? Do you have any peripherals? What will you use this computer for?

If you can answer these questions, the community will help you build a better computer.

I usally build my own with no issues. Just seen the price of that system and thought why bother.

Well guys can you recommend some stuff ?

its a lot better than the prebuilt

also you could change the case to one you like

have a look and let me know and do you need any peripherals

ok so no os or hard drives and you want to go with amd

so all you need is cpu, motherboard, ram, gpu, psu and your budget is £700

the 970 is around £260-£315

any here another with a 8350 and r9 290 16gb 1866mhz

if you already have a good psu you could push for a 970 and a sabertooth

All tempting guys , I temp to try for top end CPU's if I can. But the heat worries me on these

If I understood correctly on your last thread,tou wanted to run merely VMs?

Then you should look at 2P motherboard from amd and. Get a pair of opteron 8-10 cores but also on nvidia side you can get a dual lga1366 motherboard and get a pair of xeon x5660/5650 (which have 6cores and 12 threads per cpu and costs 100usd on ebay) which are the last overclockable cpus from intel server parts.

That should fit a 700GBP budget

Dont get the single fx socket mobo and cpus because they are the same as your i7 2600k but a dual socket mobo is another story.

PS the fx 9xxx are overclocked 83xx cpus
