At least go for a dual core, they aren't that much more. Other than that and the case (not something I would get, too much in comparison to other stuff) Related resources ~500 basic computer , no games, editing, etc. - Forum Building super computer please help - Forum Basic laptop 300 - 400 - Forum Building My Computer : Some Basic Questions - Forum How To Ask For Build Advice - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Motopsychojdn a b B Homebuilt system May 14, 2010 11:13:38 PM Yeah,thanks for that JB, Braingland not good worky today hehe nightshifts meh Bump on the dualcore tho False_Dmitry_II a b B Homebuilt system May 15, 2010 1:56:08 AM In all honesty, if you're gonna stick with the sempron you'd be better off just buying some older similar stuff from ebay. Just go to the mobos + CPU's section and get something there, it will undoubtedly be cheaper. You might even be able to swing one of the old dual core models which should outpace that still. batuchka a b B Homebuilt system May 15, 2010 1:47:23 PM Oww your sempron config is $353 before any rebates and for cheaper: Computer n00b May 15, 2010 9:53:30 PM it has to be micro atx and a micro atx cube case so getting a midtower wont work. jbakerlent a b B Homebuilt system May 15, 2010 11:21:21 PM Batuchka's build is uATX, you can just switch out the case for one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... He's got a very nice build there btw. False_Dmitry_II a b B Homebuilt system May 16, 2010 1:12:32 AM Why does it have to be a cube case? batuchka a b B Homebuilt system May 16, 2010 6:19:59 AM Actually i do up lots of SFFs, HTPCS, etc and i totally understand why peeps love cubes but in TS case dropping down to a Sempron ouch!
