PARTS PREFERENCES: Most likely AMD processor and ATI graphics
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe (not for the initial build, but I would like the capability there if it doesn't add to the cost)
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe (not for the initial build, but I would like the capability there if it doesn't add to the cost)
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1280x1024 (for now, monitor will be upgraded in the future)
I purchased a XCLIO A380 Silver Full Tower Computer Case with P5NSLI mobo and 500W PSU from ebay a couple of years ago. I was going to put intel quad core CPU, but the rapid change of tech made the barebone sytem old and made me look into a new build. Basically, I don't want to spend more time working on the old mobo and want to build a AMD gaming system. I read other thread about building $300 budget PC and got some idea on the part that I want to put to this build.
well i'd say the p5nsli board seen its day from what i've seen the p5n boards dont have a pci 2.0 slot an for your choice of graphics card you could add a 4670 in it would perform a bit better andcould you post the power supplies make and spacifications
