Compiling does better with more cores and the L3 would help so for a work PC i would compromise to an IGP chipset like 785G , hit a nice Deneb 925/945 and when i want to game seriously fork out for something at least in the performance range of a GTS 250/HD 4850 hehe

Don't like or trust Biostar at all. Get ASUS, Gigbyte, or MSI.
