You should be able to get more modern parts for a similar price.

Ask ! Get the answer solidstategamer July 16, 2010 3:21:53 PM I build for friends and family, definitely not the same needs as I have myself. Budget is their primary factor unlike us gamers. If you have something similar in price feel free to post and I can take a look at it however. coldsleep a b B Homebuilt system July 16, 2010 3:31:06 PM I'd think that you could get an AMD Athlon II X3 setup for the same price or less. I'm afraid something just came up and I don't have time for a full build at the moment, but I'll try to get back with a build in a bit. solidstategamer July 16, 2010 3:38:05 PM I have a build of the AMD variant but he doesn't like AMD, even if it's cheaper. So yeah, kinda restricted to Intel. If you get the time I'd like to see your build though and we can compare. Best solution coldsleep a b B Homebuilt system July 16, 2010 4:25:10 PM No combos, and I tended to pick quality over the cheapest part available. Could go lower on the mobos if you desire. Looks like your budget is around $240.
