  2. hehe your gonna need more then 600 dollars. I thought my first build would be a 5-600 dollar build...... 1200 dollars later just for the rig itself . i would say to you don't skimp on the MOTHERBOARD if your gonna skimp at all. at least a solid foundation for future improvements. once you build your own system, its easy to get the upgrade sickness. Good luck and enjoy .
  3. then what would you recommend as a mobo like future proof and second thing is if its possible for anyone to find like single item build since this will probly be bought in like 1-2 months so i dont think combo offers last that long :S well ty in advance
  4. ^ There is only a $30 difference between single item build and the combo...So the total wont change much...
    And as for the mobo, the Gigabyte that I have linked is a very good one and if you are a regular user, then I dont think you would need anything more...It can support even the 140W Phenom, which I think would be the max TDP for the AMD CPUs...
