Im starting a new gaming rig im trying to get the best for the cheapist. ( meaning im trying to see the lowist amount of money i can spend to build my 16 year old a pure gaming rig)
So my first question to the toms community is this
dual core or quad amd is the choice as everyone knows its the least exspencive
then mother board's im trying to get atleast 60 frames raiding World of warcraft
but im trying to stay at the cheapist price available .
yes im looking for recomondation on motherboard and cpu DD3 / amd cpu iv never ran intel and i know they cost more to build im trying to keep it light on my pockets while at the same time having great FPS in world of warcraft
agree, athlon IIx3 440 and an am2+/am3 socket mobo(ddr2 and ddr3) each for 60-70 bucks at newegg.com...but what about your graphics card? how much ram are you using? asking, because those are also big factors in achieving your goal. i play runes of magic and i do good to get 40fps in a raid on all high settings with an ati 5850 graphics card, 4gb 1600 ddr3 ram, intel i5-750 cpu on a p55 mobo
