The x4 950 is a pretty much a meh... CPU. Though it can be overclocked, BUT that Motherboard has the bare bones chipset that can't overclock. So buy the CPU separately for $60 and then find a B350 AM4 chipset MB for a total of $20 more than this deal. That Motherboard will be future proof (three years anyway) for Ryzen / Ryzen 2 CPU's when funds come available meantime you can overclock the x4 950.

I would buy this combo and use it for awhile, then upgrade the CPU and sell the old one to defray the cost. Keep the motherboard for use with a ryzen CPU. Get one of the x processors since you can't overclock on this board.

I agree it isn't the greatest mobo. However it's fine for entry level. Use this build for awhile and upgrade later to Ryzen lower end. The CPU is budget and even a 1300x would be a huge upgrade in the future for a budget build. Sell the old CPU and recoup some of the money spent. I concede that a 1600x with this mobo is a head scratcher though.

Yes, I did miss my morning coffee. Waiting for Amazon to bring me my new mug.
