  1. Hello newbuildermike;

    Approximate Purchase Date: (1-2 months)
    It's a little far out to be looking at specific parts for your build.
    Sorr, I can't see anything in your old parts that is going to be useful in your new build. That socket 775 is just a bit long in the tooth.
  2. @ Bit-Tech:

    Affordable All-Rounder March 2011

    Enthusiast Overclocker March 2011

    -> You'll want to decide on what monitor resolution you plan on using. That will have a big impact on the video card and power supply you'll end up needed.
  3. Ya the latest $500 SBM even trumps the previous one @ same price point back in Dec 2010 so @ $600 i would simply

    1. Beef up to a 500-600W 80+ PSU
    2. Slot out the HD 6850 to a HD 6870 or maybe a GTX 560?
