    If not then can you guys find me one that is and it's around the same price please? @Lehsyrus @Buttermilk Biscuits @Liteaku Seriously don't want to end up with a motherboard that isn't even compatible with the processor.
    I wouldn't have suggested that motherboard if I thought it was incompatible. AM3+ mobos are generally compatible with AM3 cpus, as long as the motherboard lists that it supports that CPU.

    ASUS - M5A78L-M/USB3 CPU Support List - asus.com

    That motherboard you linked is socket FM2, which is for AMD's APU (CPU + GPU) series.

    Which one should I choose or you guys have better rigs for lower prices that do better?




    CHOOSE 1,2,3, OR 4.
    My rig was around £550 and it runs all new games on High and sometimes even on Ultra with 60+ FPS but I started with an AMD FX-4170 and then got this 8350 which is no-where near as good as an Intel CPU but I didn't want to switch motherboards just because of a CPU, look at the full rig on my profile.
