    Default AMD System Buying Guide

    I'm gonna buy AMD processor and motherboard. Give me suggestion, my budget around 20k.
    My initial choise is -

    AMD Athlon II X4 640 - 8600 Tk
    Gigabyte 880GM-USB3 - 9000 Tk
    4 GB DDR3 RAM - (1700 + 1700) Tk

    This is going to be my next 3 yr System. I am not an addicted gamer, mainly I will use the system for downloading. It will run 24x7 (!!!). My present PC is -

    Intel C2D E7500 2.93 GHZ
    ASUS g31 P5KPL-AM
    4 GB DDR2

    Now tell me guys is it good choice or I need to change my decision.

    It's alright, but IMO, increasing the budget to go for Phenom II X4 would be better.

    Get a Cheaper Motherboard and get Phenom II x4

    Or Get a Phenom II x2 ( Price ~ 8500tk) and try unlocking the other 2 cores to make it Phenom II x4 ^^' (Not recommended)

    Your choice is good anyways.

    As long as the linux has the Driver for the chipset, LAN & Audio onboard it doesnt matter who manufactured the Board.. it will run fine with linux.

    Bhaiya, MSI Mobo's won't have any prob with linux at all if the drivers and other stuff are installed properly, getting the Gigabyte USB3 mobo is not that much necessary imo, or if you can, then you can increase your budget even more and get the Gigabyte 880GM with the Phenom

    ---------- Post added at 21:04 ---------- Previous post was at 20:59 ----------

    Owh and the MSI 880GM supports cfx too

    MSI 760 GM-P33 Mobo can be good choice on tight budget. I am using it with the Athlon 640 ,everything is fine. Linux should not be an issue here, you can always get the latest drivers from the manufacturer websites.
