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:

Then get this board, $60 for the same features+ warranty:

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