I'm building a budget sytem using an Nvidia GTS 250 that will be used for Folding@home and some gaming.
I'm currently looking at an ASRock G41M-LE, Intel Pentium E6300 Wolfdale 2.8GHz with 2GB DDR2 1066 ram.
I need to keep the MB/CPU/Ram combination around $180 from newegg.com Is this probably the best combination or is there a better one that I'm overlooking. Also I don't intend on overclocking this build.
agreed. the amd720 with an asus board, no ram, is selling for a little under $200 on newegg, and that's a great price. So you prolly won't find anything better than a mid level dual core at that price range.
