Answer by Nemo the geek
I have an AMD FX-4100 but the FX-6300 is way better and is only $ 139.99 at Newegg. 8GB of ram is plenty so the money you save can get you the 6300. Ram won’t give you any more speed over 8GB, the first 4GB do a lot but not so much after that. That is all I would change. People are overkilling on ram only because it is so cheap and in the days when it cost more it was good to go from 2 to 4 gigs but over 8 gigs is wasted money and ram.
