I will reuse an old Antec case and IDE DVD drive. I also still have the stock HSF from my 1055t. The HDD and mobo are already paid for, so I figured this is a pretty good price for what I'm getting, no? With the $20 promo card, I can grab a copy of Win7 for $80. Total cost after rebates is $225.96.
For what will it be used?
I don't think I get your CPU choice. If this is a "play" box, get a Black edition and see what you can unlock or how high you can push it. Otherwise, get an Athlon II (higher clocked X3 or cheaper X2).
Won't be used for any gaming except farmville, etc. (Not by me!) Was just trying to keep the overall price as low as possible, and figured for $55 factoring in the promo card, basically same price as Athlon II x2 with L3 and chance for unlock.
