hey guys i hope im posting this in the right place....
i was wondering if there are any motherboards that i could put in a dell optiplex gx620 mid tower
im asking this becuase im wondering if it would be worth my time to completely rebuild it?
any help is appreciated thank you
It depends if you want to completely rebuild it because $500 can get you a good enough gaming PC... You can get an i5 2500k and a $80 Z68 MoBo and a $100 GPU than a $40 500w PSU and $40 RAM and a $20 Optical Drive...
ya its not my primary comp its one of my old comps that i was thinking about rebuilding for my little brother but i think ill just build him one from scratch
It's best if you start with the old comp because there's some stuff you can use like the mid tower and RAM? Those system spec isn't good for anything these days, my i7-950 can barely do stuff(Being nearly able to do high end games like BF2)
ya only the tower would be of any use. i opened it up to look at the RAM only 512mb sadly, but i imagine i could also use the PSU since im just making him more of a media and internet comp
You need help finding components? For starters or for internet use and stuff similar, start with these...
$140 i3-2120(Performs almost the same as First Gen quad cores like C2Q Q9550)
$80-100 Z68 MoBo(Dont need expensive MoBo when you ain't OverClocking or playing high end games)
$20-30 2x2GB RAM(2GB of RAM is enough for multi-tasking)
$30 250gb 3gb/s 8mb cache(250GB should be enough and will last few years B4 200GB is used if you browse and play little games like WC3)
$20 Optical Drive(Dont really need one but to install windows, Everything is mainly portable to USB but cant install windows from USB)
$60 VideoCard(You can get a GT9800 for about $60 with 512MB)
