    At the moment I'm between the i7 and the R5/R7 2xxx. So, which to choose?
    Here's a little price comparison (prices in brazilian Real):

    Well, you are comparing H310 boards versus B350, when really you should be comparing H310 versus A320 chipsets. B350 is gamer tier, H310 is entry-level 'grandma's PC' tier.

    I've seen a couple of B350s for around the same price as the A320, so perhaps he found some good deals.

    Since K cpus are out of the picture, i would go with 16GB R5 2600. Its performance is almost the same as the stock 8600 and the sweet spot for games seems to be 6 cores at the moment. Also, the 6 extra SMT threads could come in handy in the future.
