    Its a good build to start with from an upgrading sense. That 970 board will support steamroller and such from what previous experience from Asrock says.

    Still think the i5 is the better choice.

    Why? Better benchmarks because the better gpu will make up for the weaker cpu in actual games.

    Still a good deal.

    He said the FX, because the CPU has a high clock and he doesn't know and what is overclocking, so the FX.

    I figured as much make sure to turn him to this site we can always give him a bit of help with overclocking if he ever has the want.
