New Build - looking for comments

Postby PDM » Sun Aug 24, 2014 3:07 pm

I'm gonna take the plunge for the first time in quite a few years.
Looking for comments on this build:

AMD FX-6300: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819113286

No gaming or anything like that....just looking for something that will last a few years.

Looks like a nice package! What about the CPU cooler choice?
But what OS will run on it? Windows 7 or Windows 8 are the only current choices.
And in 64-bit only, with 16 gigs of memory. But Linux OS types would be great, also.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!

Thanks for the reply.

I figured to run the stock cooler that comes with it. Since I don't plan on gaming or overclocking, I figured it should be adequate.
And Win 7 x64.....I hate Windows 8 with the heat of 1000 suns!! I'll take a look at Windows 9 when it comes out.
