As the title states. For my wife, I got her a new board finally. I'm trying to decide on what CPU to let her use.

The current is a FX-4300. This cpu has been through LN2 and I simply don't trust it for any long term use. However, I have a 4350 on the way that's never been abused.

So what would be a better deal for her?

Opteron 1389 (if it works in the board - see motherboard section for question regarding functionality) Perhaps any Phenom II besides this one??

OR

FX-QUAD core. 4300 (been LN'ed) or 4350.

Oh the decisions.

Also on a side note without another thread.... Should I continue to let her use the GTX 760, or put her on the iGPU from the motherboard?
Integrated ATI Radeon HD 3000 graphics (DirectX10)

HD 3000 is good for video streaming? Or should I not even bother with this?

Thanks for any input in advance!
