    Would you know a good and cheap mother board for a intel CPU? I might be able to get one cheap.
  3. What's the model number of the CPU you can get?

    Intel Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual-Core Processor i know its this, I also know its not the best but I'm on low cash and this will do for now.
  5. Will you be overclocking the G3258?

    Probably not for a good while maybe like 6 months then i might consider it but for now i'd say no.

  8. Or you could do this if you want to save a few more bucks, but, while the V31 is a pretty decent mid-tower case, it's not in the same classl as the Source 530.
