[Amazon Canada] AMD FX 8350 black edition $120

Good price for those who still have an am3+ motherboard and ram and might want to upgrade a bit but want to wait till newer components perhaps go down a bit in price.

I bought this exact cpu used off Craigslist over 3+ years ago for $70 and it's been in my wife's system ever since w 16gb ddr3, an msi gtx 660 w a modified silent heatsink and a M.2 pcie SSD on a recent Gigabyte board that replaced the original AM3+ board. The system has been great for anything and everything she does, best 70 ever spent. No reason to run anything newer and occasionally I hop on and even game on the system, not the latest games but it still is great at 1080p

Great cpu for overclocking and mining from home if you are into this kind of stuff.

This is incompatible with AM3 mobos, right ? I have a phenom which doesn't support SSE4.1. Most AAA developers dropped support for it, and it's getting frustrating not being able to play the new games. Latest one is AC origins, and ubisoft being ubisoft, refused to path it.

May just upgrade to a Ryzen eventually. Need some good deals on it.

Yup. Socket AM3+ only.
damn I was hoping this could replace my Phenom II, but it seems my motherboard has an AM3 socket and doesn't support AM3+ processors. Oh well, thanks anyway OP

I currently have the fx 6300 would this be a good upgrade?
If you are only surfing with perhaps some casual photo or video editing then perhaps not, depends on what you are doing, the fx6300 is also a pretty good processor in it's own right.

Why is that thing still in the market? For anyone wondering that thing was released around the same time as Intel 2xxx series.

Lol, because that thing is powerful enough for most and many of us still have the hardware to use it with and don't want to pay the high prices newer gear is going for presently, and most of us are not merely keyboard jockeying, sticker numbers reading, bench mark junkies. Aaand it's cheap even for what it presently is to some.

I have an 8 year old Phenom II, which can still more than handle anything I throw at it, including supported latest AAA games.

This cpu has actually gotten better as software is taking advantage of its feature set much better than 5 years ago, there is nothing worong with this cpu, except it is not the most power effeicient and once overclocked it is fine for majority of users easily except die hard gamers. Edits video quiet well

It's in my desktop as well, and I also have a 6300 in my vmware box, no complaint at all, when the day come for a upgrade, I will put 8350 in my VMware box, and it still has a long way to go in its life :D
