So, right now I'm between choosing an [URL="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284"]AMD FX-8350 Black Edition [/URL] or an[URL="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113331"] AMD A10-6800K Richland [/URL]
Newegg is pushing the FX-8350 super hard and it has loads of positive reviews where the Richland isnt as popular but uses a fm2 socket which the [URL="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130754"]MSI A88X-G45 GAMING [/URL]motherboard uses and I've read good reviews for.
Which is the better cpu? If it is the FX-8350 whats a good motherboard for it?
What are you looking to do? Will you have a dedicated graphics card? Neither are a top pick for gaming, and the A10 looses a lot of it's value if you're using a dedicated card.
I'm gonna use it for gaming and 3d graphic work for my major. I'm planning on getting one eventually, I have a pretty okay one from a few years back that might get me by until I can afford a really nice one. Right now I've only got about $600-700 to work with and I'm hoping to take advantage of all the sales going on now.

Those three are all that I really have left to get, aside from an aftermarket fan or ssd.
