Feel free to make changes aslong as it stays below the budget and dont compromise performance to much. The motherboard has a built in graphic card and i wont be using it for much some casual gaming and watching some vids (up to 1080pif i can). I need a hdmi for my tv so if u replace the mother board please replace it witth one with igp with hdmi. Thanks
im thinking of replacing the phenom with a AMD Athlon II X3 445 for beter performance also the mother board not sure weather to get the asrock or this biostar TA790GX 128M Ver. 5.x also please provide links with prices(cheap assposible prefered xD) Thank you
Thx for the replys guys ^^ i like your build batuchka, But is there any performance advantages in swapping the motherboard over, he one i chose comes with a 128mb memory card for the igp. i dont mind paying a few extra quid for beter performance also id like to swap the proccsor for the athlon 640 is that worth it? t. Btw i dont need a hardrives or optical drives got them, also yah once i got more gamingneeds ill go for a gfx card like that ty
If u are referring to the 128mb Sideport for IGP - dun worry too much about that: for your needs it wouldn't be needed (if u had to top up $$) Once u need to game seriously u hit a half decent discrete anyways
Yes i was referring to the side port. Theres a very small difference in price range on the two motherboards if theres no other reasons other then one being cheaper then the other. id rather go with the asrock. i would atleast have the sideport for like extra £4 and i will be doing some gaming on it. Btw whats a half decent discrete mean? Cheers^^
Simply put a separate graphics card that u buy that offers you wayyy more frames than any integrated graphics could offer in games ^^
Oh i see, But i wont be able to buy a graphic card for a while after i buy the pc so i need the igp to run some games for me and to be able to run 1080p untill the time i can get a grahphic card and that wont be any time soon.
