First budget build Tags: Homebuilt CPUs Systems Product Last response: March 16, 2009 2:09 PM in Systems Share pandaking23 March 16, 2009 7:49:01 AM Hey guys, I was planning on building my first computer. I'm going to be going pretty cheap just to try things out. maybe $200-250 So far here's what I've got (I'm going to be re-using a case/psu+cd/dvddrives.) CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... VGA: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The one thing I'm concerned about is compatibility. The CPU specs says the hyper transport is 2000MHz. But the mobo says it's FSB is 1000MHz Hyper transport. Will this cause any problems?
