    Even without OC(not sure if that board can) that will be miles better than the FX.

    What country do you live in so i can look around for prices.

    Definitely go for those if you can still cancel the order for AMD parts.

    Also like said get the non-K version of the CPU (with the H97 motherboard) to save a few bucks more.

    So far I've only come across one single game that uses multiple cores well. And that is Rainbow Six Siege.

    Fx 8350 is an ok CPU, I ran one for a while but believe you me when I tell you once you go intel you will never come back lol,that sounds kinda wrong depending if your twisted Like I am haha anyway.....if you can try and pick up sky lake i3 or i5 you will be a lot happier in the long run,fx is way to old to be buying at this point in time.If you must stay amd then at least save some money and get a 8320e it's basicly same thing. I hate my ipod btw so excuse my French here.

    I was looking at the 6600, except the 3.3ghz with the stock cooler- but maybe I could get that 3.5GHz and get an aftermarket one.

    If you don't plan to overclock get the 6600 I think.

    See this kinda pisses me off, In a way it looks like we are turning people away from Amd.This guy was just about to pull the trigger on a Fx until we jumped in.To a certin extent amd did it to themselfs not releasing anything to compete in the mid-range segment and taking forever to release Zen, its no wonder everyone's switching!

    Same thing with me I kept waiting and waiting, watching intel release new cpu's seems like on a weekly basis lol. I hope they can get there act together -Loosing a hell of a lot of sales guys. nz

    It's been so long since AMD had a killer gaming CPU that I forgot they even existed.

    I'm not pity-buying AMD's product just so they can do better. I'm not rich enough for that and I doubt op is either.

    If AMD made decent stuff this wouldn't be a problem.

    Thats nice. A Skylake i5 will be more than enough processing power. Now get a decent GPU.

    It's going to be much more future-proof than that fx8350.

    No, should be fine for 1080P.
    You can always get an additional 15-20% performance if you flash a custom bios if performance isnt good enough.

    Not at all. It should be fine at 1080p. Thing is that you can ramp any GPU in there and that 6600k will still be able to drive it.
