So I have this mobo laying around collecting dust and figured I'd try to do something with it. It's a MSI 880GMA-E45. Had several problems with OC'ing a x6 1055t on it, so I bought a different board for that build which is working great.
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 71033upply
$44.99 - $15 MIR = $29.99
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 $219.21.
And that's pretty much what it'll be used for. If I were to game, I have my other rig with the x6 oc'd to 3.7 (24/7 oc). This will basically be my son's bedroom computer and he just uses it to surf, homework, videos, music, etc.
