Need some advice about new pc

Hi guys, after some research I made up this build:
AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS GeForce GTX 950 STRIX-GTX950-DC2OC-2GD5-GAMING 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
I already have HDD, 8 gbs of ram and 650w rasurbo psu. Are those parts compatible? Also I live in europe and I am planning to buy those parts from newegg, will i have any problems? As all electronic devices in the USA use ac 110v and in europe its 220v. any help would be appreciated :)

  1. Best answer
    The only part that is really region specific is the PSU. All the other stuff is 'universal'

    I would not use that motherboard for a FX 6300 at 95 watts, much less a FX 8320 at 125W. It has very light power phases and no heatsinks on the VRMs so you will get a lot of thermal throttling in normal gaming use. To get the best out of a FX8320, you need to overclock it, so make sure your components will support overclocking. You will need an aftermarket CPU cooler, sooner or later.

    thanks and is there any better motherboard in this price range you could advice?
  3. I'm guessing that you are not in the USA. Can you link to a site where you would buy from. In general, you are looking for a very good 970 chipset board or many 990FXs.

    I live in Georgia(Europe) and I am probably going to buy those parts from newegg.com ( yes I know that they dont ship directly to Georgia but I can get packages via private post company which operates in The USA and Georgia) anyway, does GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P sound good? plus it's 36% discount on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128651&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&PageSize=10&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&IsFeedbackTab=true#scrollFullInfo
  5. UD3P is a great 970 board with good power delivery and VRMs for a FX83xx and can overclock it if needed.. I used to live in Georgia (USA) :)
