Be best to decide on a budget, for what you are thinking with an i5, will need a CPU, a mobo, and the DRAM....once you have a budget in mind or a particular CPU, let me know and we'll see what the best options are for you

Well...I'm hoping I'll still be around ;)  and would like to hear, got any builds under your belt yet? If any problems, feel free to PM me, I had both my sons building early, they started at 7 and 5 respectfully - the oldest has stayed with it, and now runs a IT shop for the Air Force
