That Asus board is very low end, but I don't know if you even need things like Sata 6gbps or USB3.0. You can try looking for 970 chipset boards instead of the 990. Still cheap and offers much more than the 760g.

Finished my build for my little brother.

I'm not sure of all the details, but its something like this:

a 2.0GHz core 2 duo using Sony Vegas Pro to render a 15min clip at 720p used to take 3 hours. 2GB ram, SSD boot drive, HDD + external HDD for recording/encoding purposes.

a stock fx-8320 using Sony Vegas Pro to render a 15min clip at 1080p takes 45min. 16GB ram, SSD only (test was ran before we installed the hard drives).


not exactly 'conclusive,' but if anyone wants any specific tests run, let me know.
