Hello everyone, First of all these are the things which I have already bought.. 1. Monitor:- BenQ GL2460HM 24-inch HD Monitor with BlueRigger High Speed HDMI Cable 25 feet. 2. Cabinet:- Circle CC830 white. 3. PSU:- Corsair Cx600 watts.

4. Ram:- 2X4 GB Corsair value select.

Now, these are my questions:- I am unable to decide which motherboard to take..Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 990X or MSI 970 GAMING or ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0. Then there is these the gigabyte 990XA is not availbale where I live (Kolkata, India). So, I would like some advice on this. Then, I have decided to buy, the AMD 3.5 GHz FX 8320 ( as I can't afford an Intel variant with the same features.) and the Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon R9 270X with Boost OC 4 GB DDR5 graphics card. So guys please help out on the motherboard issue and the other parts that I have thought of buying. Any changes regarding my options would be helpful. Thanx :-)

motherboards would go for a gigabyte or Asus best 2 board manufacturers around in my opinion

would also think of upping the psu to 700/750 watt to give you a bit of wriggle room 600 watt bit light
