I may be missing something, but AIUI, if you have an AMD FX, then you
don't need a graphics card. It has a built-in quite capable GPU.

If you're not planning to use that GPU, then Intel's Core series CPUs
offer considerably better performance for the buck. I know some people
have fierce vendor loyalty, but AMD's processors *only* make sense if
you want the GPU, from all I've read.
