Terrible motherboard for FX-8320. FX processor is power hungry, so a quality motherboard is needed or it'll overheat. Whereas you can cheap out motherboard on Intel CPU, you CANNOT do it on AMD build.

Also, what are you trying to build that needs FX-83xx?

What about get 6300 instead of 8320 for msi g46 or m5a97 r2.0

It sucks; get a new one. :P No, just listen to the people before me and you'll get what you need. But a 2TB HDD? What are you going to put on there, the entire N64 and Sega Genesis library? I'm only saying that if you can't get one for a decent price, then you could get 2 1TB HDD's if you really do need that much space. Or you could just buy hard drives as you need them.

The alternative to hybrid drives is the smart caching/virtu drive (or whatever they are calling it these days) feature added to Z77 and Z87 chipsets. However it has been known to break (requiring rebuilding) every time the system crashes or isn't properly shut down. In my experience, it's just not worth the hassle... Yet.
