2. Durable parts for heavy use like 15 to 20 hours a day.
3. Less Electricity consumption.
4. The build should be cool ex. Before i build a amd 7850 kuma paired it with asus mobo it is so hot running more than 100 units easily make the room temperature hot, I don’t want to happened it again. This is my seventh internet gaming cafe build.
5. Motherboard that can withstand frequent brownouts, cause in my country brown out happens almost everyday.

To all of you guys please give the best gaming build for this kind of preferences any help would be much appreciated. Here are some of the builds that i search on the net..... thanks in advance...

    Can you give another mother board for ddr2 cause i do have alot of 2GB ddr2 extra memory? thanks again
  3. You lose USB 3.0, also DDR3 does have performance advantage over DDR2 now that DDR3 timings are comparable to DDR2's.

    But here's a same priced alternative.
