    Thank you so much! Is a refurbished motherboard an okay idea? Or are they usually faulty/ will I get screwed in the end?
  8. Your Welcome.. They go thru them pretty good. Asus are great quality boards to begin with & a lot of boards that are returned are not defective to begin with. In my experience it is about the same as buying a new one.

    Sorry for so many questions but is the refurbished board you linked, better than this board?

  10. It has about the same specs & features. My last board was a Gigabyte that I used with a Q6600. it lasted over 5 years before it blew a capacitor.

    the same as that refurbished one you linked me? I am assuming yes.

    With that being said. If you HAD to make a split second decision concerning whether I should buy that gigabyte or Asus motherboard, which would you? Both are very similar in price.

    if you dont want to OC go with LE mobo from ASUS if you want go with 970-990X or 990FX

    Gigabyte is ok brand but ASUS has the best mobo's out there

    dont be cheap on MOBO you will need it later on if you go now with somegood mobo later on you can OC that proccesor for what it is made to OC and tweak around it it will be a shame not to do that with the 8350FX

    better wait earn some more cash buy a good mobo from asus or gigabyte doesnt matter but must be good one for that CPU

  16. I would also suggest going with the Asus M5A97 R2.0. Slightly above your budget, but it won't get much better than this. The GigabyteGA-970A-UD3P board previously posted has history of throttling the FX-8xxx CPUs. I would personally avoid it since you never know if you're getting an older version that still has that problem.

    If you can buy it new, I would personally trust it more. You'll have a longer warranty. Refurbished items have only a 90 day warranty compared to at least a year on a new product. I'd personally prefer paying some extra cash for a longer warranty, but that's just me. On Amazon it costs 85 dollars which is only 5 dollars over your budget. You can choose free shipping too.

    If you really can't afford it, you can go with the LE version:

  22. I Also prefer Asus over other brands. I never had a bad Asus board & they don't Cheap out on parts. They offer their less costly motherboards with less features instead of cutting quality.

    the same as that refurbished one you linked me? I am assuming yes.

    With that being said. If you HAD to make a split second decision concerning whether I should buy that gigabyte or Asus motherboard, which would you? Both are very similar in price.

    I stream/play games like WoW etc, that aren't super taxing.


    if you dont want to OC go with LE mobo from ASUS if you want go with 970-990X or 990FX

    Gigabyte is ok brand but ASUS has the best mobo's out there

    dont be cheap on MOBO you will need it later on if you go now with somegood mobo later on you can OC that proccesor for what it is made to OC and tweak around it it will be a shame not to do that with the 8350FX

    better wait earn some more cash buy a good mobo from asus or gigabyte doesnt matter but must be good one for that CPU


    Link me a good mobo for 100 dollars then please


    there is not much but lets try like this

    http://www.newegg.com/global/uk/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128651
    gigabyte is 110$

    http://www.newegg.com/global/uk/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130790
    MSi has x16 PCI-e slots if you are going to go with SLI later on but i dont trust MSi boards my personal opinion

    http://www.newegg.com/global/uk/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157262
    ASRock on i dont know how it OC but its in your range so research about it little

    What kind of cooler did you want to buy for the FX-8350?
