  1. Oh and I an thinking about over clocking I intend on unlocking the extra cores and I have a 1080 p monitor and later down the road I'm going to get a better Mouse and keyboard and I want USB 3 and umm hmm I have 2 hard drives but I'm goimg to upgrade that too to a 1 tb 2 of um and I have a cd burner too ( and once again I already have the chassis ( case) ) almost forgot I have Bose speakers too so that's not a prob ether :)
  2. Spend $100 less on the case .......send that one back

    use a 970 series chip set motherboard

    and get a Phenom X4 955

    use a cheaper non modular psu if you have a tight budget

    Can't send the case back sadly not an optionbut every other option is available plus I really love that case lol
  4. Well , in that case why not use one of the fusion APU's

    Total is $274
    You get a quad core processor , graphics built in to the processor that can play games OK . All round its stronger than the 880g and Phenom X2

    You can add a graphics card later if you wish
  5. Aight yea thx oh and do u say it's better then the phenom because it's 4 cores cause I personally intended on unlocking extra cores jw and if that was the prob I could get a black edition 955 also ( quad core) Oh and just saying I can go up to 400$ so I was try to get tge most out of it idc if I spend it all or a lil more just saying THXZ A TON FOR UR HELP
  6. I would be surprised if you can unlock cores on the Phenom

    The Llano cores are essentially the same with a few small refinements anyway , and you get much more powerful graphics than the 880g chipset

    You still need a hard drive , psu and dvd drive to complete it too, but that can be done pretty easily
