I'm going to put together a new gaming rig and have decided to go with AMD for the CPU. I have found a FX-8150 bundled with a ASRock 970 Extreme3 for $260 + $20 mir. or I can get a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition and Gigabyte 970A-DS3 for $80 less or FX-6300 and Gigabyte 970A-DS3 for $40 less. Would the FX-8150 be worth the extra $. Also I'm looking at getting a 7870 for the graphics.
get the FX-8320 or FX-6300 instead
Definatly agree with Phosgene. And the benchmarks speak for themselves.
