Yeah I was planning to do that. Can you suggest a cheap but efficient motherboard which can do that. I thought of Asus P7H55-M LE Motherboard. But I don't need the on board graphic support. So a cheaper alternative would suffice.
an i5 would be more powerful but also more money and if he wants just a good platform to start with that gigabyte board could be upgraded to an i5 or even an i7. with a budget tha ttight though doubt he can stretch to the i5 right now. but a possible upgrade in the future
Thanks for the replies guys. But I definitely do not want to upgrade the system for another 2-3 years. I already own a decent gaming laptop. This is just for backing up my files and playing few games occasionally.
Will i need a new power supply as well? My current power supply gives around 500W , give or take a few. I was looking for this : http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...
As far as Mobo + Processor, I have time till 3rd week of December. So anything which will suit the budget would do.
Though the deal above was good. Looks like there are a lot of negative replies. I will be leaving the country during Christmas for almost a month on vacation. So I don't think I will be able to RMA in case something goes wrong (DOA or similar).
