AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, steady, stable, and is able to use less power than many other CPU's I have seen with less cores.
Great way to save money and still build a great gaming rig.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Being that most games for the foreseeable future (and currently) will not utilize more than 4 to 6 cores, I see no need to go out and buy a CPU with more cores than that for a gaming PC build. Many games like World of Tanks and Fallout 3 use 1-2 cores max, and sometimes the games must be modded to do so. Yes it may make a tiny difference in other processes, but if you are truly trying to save money on a build... go with this CPU. It is basically the same thing as the FX-6350 except the latter is factory clocked @ 3.9 GHz. This CPU can utilize one BIOS option and work out of the box at it's Turbo rating of 4.1 GHz (and easily higher).

If you are into overclocking, looking into this with a Kraken x60 or Corsair H110i Liquid Cooler will allow you to push the chip far past the 4 GHz mark. I have not found the need to do this though. Turning on the Turbo setting is more than enough for any game out there atm. As long as you have a good video card to support it, you will not be disappointed with this CPU. It has more than enough power (with low draw of 95w) to handle maxed out games such as BF4 (with proper VC to back it up) and apps like Photoshop without any lag issues.

Save the money for the better video card... go with this processor. (for gaming builds)

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low noise, Steady power flow, great options and excellent cables

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have only had this a short time due to a replacement issue, but the packaging for this item was very nice. Comes with a velvet bag to hold the PSU and is packaged differently than the entry level models. I have noticed this with Corsair and their higher end products.

I feel this PSU would be more than adequate to push some serious gaming setups. Whether you overclock or run crazy amounts of fans and other accessories this is a great PSU to consider. Being an 80+ Gold standard too, the efficiency is better than the basic models. I would wait for the sale and buy this model again if I had a choice between the entry level models and spending a small amount more on this model. This is the heart of your entire system... it powers everything. So do not skimp out. Go for the gold. The HX series, 80+ Gold!

You will not be disappointed with this model.

Pros: Instant difference in load times. My PC is up to the PW screen in Windows 8 in under ten seconds. Transfers have been 3-4x faster than my old 6Gb/s magnetic HDD's xfer rates. I figured, buy the Samsung for the ten extra bucks. I am glad I did.

Cons: None (other than they feel so cheap bc they are all so light and plastic)

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra couple bucks on Samsung
