All of our advice and you went to build an AMD . . . . . . lol

I'm sure it will be a very respectable machine.

Good luck with your first build, you will get a very nice "buzz" when you first switch it on and the fans begin whirring up

Nothing really it was more a light hearted joke than anything else. However there is the general perception that AMD have fallen behind quite alot recently, having said this there are still many strong cases from them in the budge CPU department.

I could be labelled as somewhat of an Intel Fanboy so please take this with a pinch of salt but the AMD FX 8320 am3+ in the UK is around 130 odd and you can get an i5 4430 Haswell for 140 odd.

You can also get a budget Haswell mobo for 50 - 60 which looks around the same kind of budget for you board.

But as i said take this with a pinch of salt as I havent built a computer on a couple of years and in truth i'm a little outdated with technology but i would have gone the intel route.

I honestly had a look at that intel chip and the 8320 and most of the reviews said to go with 8320

Hmmm ok fair enough, as i said i am "wedded" to Intel so you may have made the right choice.

I image there probably was no right choice in this instace?

So you're "wedded" to Intel, huh? I'm the other guy she's been seeing...

Just couldn't resist taking a jab.
