The i5 alone is $200 and good LGA1156 boards are at least $125. Counting the OS, everything else excluding the GPU will cost $400. That's already out of your budget. Here's what I'd build: CPU: X4 635 $106 Mobo/GPU: Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 and HD 5770 $225 after rebate RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $120 HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $55 Case: Coolermaster Centurion 5 $40 after rebate PSU/Optical: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W and cheap SATA DVD burner $44 after rebate OS: Windows 7 Home 64-bit OEM $100 Total: $690 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
