Nice but u should go witih the sapphire 7770 (personal preference) and for light to mid gaming this should be good!

For the GPU if you could stretch go for a 7870 they are ABSOLOUTLY AMAZING!!! I havn't checked out the rest of your build yet but ill let you know what I think.

How much do you have to spend?

I just looked at your PSU and your CPU I would go with a fx-8150 or 8350 and go with at LEAST a 600w PSU so you have extra "buffer" power. This would allow you to upgrade to a faster GPU and/or CPU in the future. Also, if it's for gaming use windows. If you have any other questions send me a email at [email protected]

Hey guys would the free motherboard you can get with the fx4100 be any good or should I just get the msi one?http://www.microcenter.com/site/products/amd_bundles.aspx

If I were you I would go with MSI.


agreed, free stuff are not usually top notch

How much are you planning on spending?
