ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:I only have money for 2 gigs of ram... but i will certainly upgrade it later... and i heard that the socket 1156 was friyng some CPU's and that it had no future , so i wanted to know if i should stick with the 1156 build or wait 6 months to get an i7 with a 1366 mobo... i want the machine to alst around 2-3 years...
That's 400 + taxes & shipping & most likely mark-up for Euro. Then you won't be able to boot it up without a GPU. It's stretching it. I think you're better off with a budget 775 or AM2 build with IGP + PCI-E for future GPU upgrade.
Oh and the frying cpu contacts story is not as widespread, if it exists, as you imagine. Otherwise, intel stock would have plummeted by double digits. I'm running a brand new i5 pc no problem. There are plenty of i5 owners that has owned the pc for months if not a year. There is a few diehards that overclocks the i5 to 4Ghz+ no problem.
ty for the answer
400 euros... and i am expecting to use only 30 euros in RAM... whats the increase in using 2 gigs ram 1336 that cost 100 euros , from using 2 gigs 1336 that only cost 30?
and i am getting the GPU for chirstmas... should i go with a quad core or go with the build the guy above suggested build?
