I'm building a new computer on a pretty tight budget. About $400.00 Canadian. This is my first build and I really want it to go smoothly. When I receive the gear I don't want to find that something isn't compatible with something else. I'm planning on submitting the order with newegg.ca tomorrow morning 10/26/09.
This is a List of the gear and their Links on newegg:
But if you have more money to spare. Then get a Core 2 Duo.
Have you tried doing an AMD build? You'll probably get better performance for your money on the low end of the spectrum.
Also, that hard drive isn't good? Only 8MB Cache. You'll want at least 16MB. I always recommend 32 MB Cache hard drives like the Samsungs F1 or F3 or the WD Caviar Blacks series. I've been having bad luck with Seagate lately so I've made the switch to WD and Samsung drives.
