*** The ASROCK board will NOT work with 8 Series FX CPU. You’ll need to go with the Asus one to stay within the budget and keep your OC limited on the 8320. Go with a different board if a heavy OC is your aim.

    Hey I have a question. What are some budget friendly GPUs (within 150-200 dollars) that is best for Gigabyte GA-H97-D3H motherboard with a 4th gen intel i3 CPU. Any brand will do as long as it fits the budget limit and as long as its compatible with my motherboard.
    PS. I want to switch to an integrated GPU but Im on a tight budget right now so ill have to settle for a cheaper GPU. Hope you could give me some recommendations. thanks

  28. AgentFour says:

    I've found Microcenter has the best prices, as well as great bundle prices with AMD CPUs/APUs and motherboards. If you're on a budget anyway, just get an APU instead of separate CPU and graphics card.
