Just spend the extra 100 for a quad core cpu Dual core really? A dual core will not keep up with a good GPU

The CPU probably won't bottleneck that video card in many situations, but yeah, I would have gone with an FX 6300. Looks good, though.

Hell no I wouldn't recommend amd for anything but office builds I have never gotten performance with any of the computers I put them in.

really dont see the point of having a g3258 with a decent motherboard or the 1333 ram.
