Okay, I finaly have the money to start building a computer. My problem is that i have 2 older hard drives that i want to re use so i want to find a mother board that has the ide connector.
I dont have alot of money so i want a mother board max $200 but i dont want a crappy one i would like to have a 1155 socket because all i want to put in it for now is a pentium g and later upgrade to sandy bridge.
I have a case 2 older hard drives and a 550 watt power supply plus i have a video card that should be good enough for what i want to do with the comp for now.
All I want to do is play wow better then what im playing it at now i have a laptop for all the other things i do with a comp but the laptop is a 1.6 dual core so i know a pentium g will do me better and i only play on low settings so i would like to at least get normal for now.
the video card is an atI 3000 or 4000 im not sure at the moment i would have to check
anyway is there any mother boards out there that i can use or will a ide to sata converter work i hear they dont work some times?
The parts I figure I need for now are motherboard, ram, windows, cpu because i have the case, gpu, power supply and the 2 older hard drives all i want to do for now is be able to buy the mobo, ram, cpu and windows to get the comp running so i know that the parts are not defective. I hvae heard of troubles with returning parts when they are defective.
any thoughts and help with my situation would be so appreciated. please help me
I would like to get a mobo with the ide slot and have room for future upgrades so would do you all think?
