then you may have to settle with i3.
get i3 4130 -7.8k
gigabyte h81m s1 - 4k
cooler master elite 311 -2.3k


If you go for AMD rig, you will have to buy a GPU as the Mobo doesnt have integrated GPU
Otherwise go for AMD APUs (not recommended)


if you want only AMD you either have to
1.Buy a temporary cheap GPU for Display.
2.Get and APU (not recommended).
3.Stare at a Black screen :D

^agreed go for m5a97 with fx6300 or dont get it all.Many of my friends just bought fx6300 with m5a78 and they selling it withing 5 days of use.You will also need good cooler.


one of my frnd is using fx6300 with GA-78LMT-USB3 from last 1 year , it costs 4.1k ..
so not any mobo under 4-4.5k for fx6300 .
last options gigabyte ds3p or else Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
Go for amd a10....u can add a discrete gpu later...deadly combo!!! you may have to compromise on your hdd and monitor..but its worth it!
