  1. Cheap system with an 1055T? Why?
    Id say for general usage you can get by with a Athlon X4 635 just fine. Maybe even a 440.

    First, stay as far away as possible from Diablotek, its just BAD, get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371029&cm_re=ntec_neo_eco-_-17-371-029-_-Product

    Then get this board, $60 for the same features+ warranty: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157199&cm_re=ASrock_880G-_-13-157-199-_-Product

    Finally, don't Microcenter have a Buy a CPU get a board free deal?
