I'm looking for some critique on this gaming build I have planned. I would like to keep it close to what the total is now, and less would be great. The only thing that I have is a heat sink - cooler master hyper 212. Here's what I have in my cart, and a couple of these are combo deals.
CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2GHz - $88.99
mike: you MIGHT get extra cores (only about 50% unlock any, and most of those that do, only get 1 extra) might as well go for the guaranteed 3/4 cores.
You can also get the Phenom II X3 740BE for the same 88.99, but it will need a separate cooler, a Kingwin XT-1264 runs about $25 and a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ runs about $30, both of which will allow great overclocks.
