AMD FX-6300 Six Core Processor Socket AM3+ 3.5GHZ 14MB 95W Retail Box
I'm very interested int he FM2 A10 processor.
The discrete card is (As I mentioned) a hand-me-down from me.
We were looking into a 6-core AM3+ build but got interested in the A10, After a bit of research and price checking the build will be cheaper on FM2 anyway.
The A10 is all she'll ever need for a processor, and the same with the GPU.

If the AM3+ parts we'd like to get go down in price we might switch, but for right now FM2 is cheaper so that's what were going with. As for more cores, more cores aren't ALWAYS better. 4 will be plenty, As for overclocking, I doubt there will be much of that, But in the case that there is any the Hyper612 can handle that nicely, so all around Fm2 is a good build choice at the current moment.
"what's that black fan at the back of the case for? I never see it on."
"Well it's REALLY loud, but it's 5500 RPM and moves a TON of air."
"Why do you have it though?"
"Well... It's the "Oh s**t!" fan."
"What do you mean?"
"Well what do you say when your graphics card hits 90c?"
