I'm mostly confused on (AND NEED HELP ON!):
1. How fast a processor I can pick -- I prefer the fastest Phenom II x3
2. What heat sink (if any) do I need? I prefer a quiet fan.
3. What RAM memory goes with that? I want a total of 4G.
I ALREADY PICKED:
CASE: Antec Sonata, microATX
Why? I want quiet; I want 4 internal bays
MOBO: ASUS M4A785T-M/CSM AM3 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX
Why? Sweet spot x3 with L3; also, int.graph. 2560x1600 http://tinyurl.com/yg8poyf
