First I have to say props to 'malmental' when he knows something he knows something even when Dell says differently.
Thanks guy wherever you are.
I have an i7 LGA1366 mini-tower unit and solid Satelite Notebook i5 with nVidia GTS350M.
I think I want something in between (desktop, smaller) and to build myself.
Also I'm thinking AMD Athlon II X3 or Phenom II X3 and mATX siz with mini-tower or smaller size case.
Any help please?
I would go for a regor dual core amd; used they go for $50 or less. I recommend a biostar or msi board with an hdmi port for blueray. If the board has this port, then you know it has a newer chipset. Newegg had one two days ago for $40 after rebate, but it sold out. Look for a used case on craigslist. I found an antec for only $20 this morning; same for the power supply. The power supply will depend on your video card requirements. If you go with onboard video, then any 400w ps will work fine.
