Recommend CPU/MOBO on a $150 Budget!
Jul 15, 2012, 8:54 PM
I'm putting together a fairly inexpensive system on a budget of $150, I have most of the hardware except for a motherboard and CPU.
Honestly, im not that knowledgeable when it comes to chosing hardware. Any recommendations for a CPU and mobo? It's for a multitasking pc, not gaming. Also probably some lite image and video editing.
