thanks to MadAdmiral and WR2 for giving me advice in my last post!!!!!
I'm in a bit of a rush so please post-away your answers because I need to know if I have all the connectors or do I need to make changes. With this I'm really blowing my budget, but it's a fact I won't get a new PC for at least 5 years from now....
Best of wishes,
That GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3 motherboard supports Advanced Clock Calibration which could unlock the 4th core on the X3 CPU.
And even if the unlock isn't stable the 3 cores @ 3.2Ghz is a good match for a gaming system with a GTX 460 video card.
The motherboard accessory pack has all the cables you need.
First, I'm from Romania, where everything costs more, here's the best example:
A LEGO toy which in the US costs 140$ here it costs 250$ so I really can't afford something else. In time I will buy more memory as I am installing Win 7 on 64 bits.
Secondly please give me an example for a good PSU, budget, of course, with lets say 500W.
