Thanks. Would a Phenom x4 925 with a Asus M4A87TD EVO mobo be a good alternative or not?
The Phenom x4 925 is a good CPU, but it's $129... I thought you were looking for a budget PC? The Asus EVO board is a nice board, but it's $109 and designed for Crossfire/Core unlocking. If this is a budget PC are you going to want to use Crossfire? What's your budget if you don't mind me asking? If your looking for Crossfire and Core unlocking your looking at a large, possibly expensive power supply. Not to mention you'll want to get a better heat-sink, and plenty of case fans to keep the temps down. All this will drive the price up significantly.
