Well what's your workload?
Games like minecraft, data compression, drive encryption.
Is that more of a constant workload? because you can get an 8320e + motherboard for around 200
thats exaly a good point, didnt even thought about that. ☺
partial not constant but a large part of the time especially in the beginning. is the 8320e the cpu that only had "4 cores"? and here is a updated list. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/b86KvK
the one with the server board.
They're all 8 core, it's just optimized more for power efficiency, if you meant the recent lawsuit that's relatively bunk
You'll want either this Asrock 970M board, or a 990/fx board
CPU: AMD FX-8320E 3.2GHz 8-Core Processor ($134.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: ASRock 970M PRO3 Micro ATX AM3+/AM3 Motherboard ($50.15 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: Crucial 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($31.45 @ SuperBiiz)

Yeah that wont be a good build.
i would realy recommend to go with one of the two i5 builds if you can afford.
With those i5 builds you are totaly set for the future, especialy if you would go with the Skylake one i made.
Basicly if you have more money next year to upgrade the gpu to one of the new highend Nvidia pascal cards or new highend amd cards that might come out next year.
You will totaly ready to do so cpu and platform wise.
But Also the Haswell i5 build that @Streetguru made would be a decent base to start with.
ok added the motherboard and i am wanting a team red build. The best way to support them is to use them.
Get the 600W PSU for 5 dollars more man you have more headroom
Possibly a better Wifi Option
Well if you decide to go with a FX8 core then i would realy advice to pickup a decent mobo realy.
The Asrock 970 Mpro3 with only 4+1 powerphase isnt realy a great board to run a FX8 core on, especialy if you want to overclock.
- Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P 8+2 powerphase
- Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 6+2 powerphase digi vrm.
- Msi 970A Gaming 6+2 powerphase analog vrm
what do the different powerphases do?
Provide more stable power to the CPU, which is why I suggested that Asrock board, which is about the cheapest board I'd recommend, you want a board with the 990/fx chipset as well, since they're made for the higher end chips that go to 125W
and the difference between analog and digitial vrms? sorry very noob to all of this. last build i did was socket 478.
What the VR cirquitry basicly does, is converting the voltage and current imput from the psu to the constant voltage and current needed for the cpu.
NOOOOOOO Not the 970a, MSI Mobos and AMD CPUS do not bode well. I would only recommend Asus or Gigabyte motherboards with an AMD AM3+ CPUS. The non gaming series uses cheap parts and combine that with the power hungriness of an AMD CPU just no no way.
alright thanks. added the gigabyte board. here is the build so far. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/WDbVkL do you recommend a cpu cooler with out breaking $625?
Msi 970A gaming, like i listed above has a 6+2 powerphase analog.
Its not the best overclockers board in the world, since it lacks on LLC,
and the vrm and mosfets can still get pretty hot wenn you overclock a FX8 core over 4.5GHz.
but its not as bad as the old MSi 970A G45 / G46 series with only 4+1 powerphase.
The Msi 970A krait edition also rubbish.
Going by reviews the ASrock 970M board seems to have the upper hand
Get a 990/fx chipset board, those generally will work well with any FX chip
