I decided to see if I could build a system on the same budget that would blow it out of the water on performance. We don't play games, mostly, facebook, youtube, flash games at best. This is what I came up with.
MD Athlon II X3 435, heatsink, fan. $61.89
GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H mobo $105
Crucial c300 64gb hd $115
gskill ripjaw 2x4gb memory $70
Use ATX Dell case we already own
Use ATX Dell Powersupply we already own
Use IDE cdburner we already own.
We have screens, mice, keyboards.
Prices include shipping. Total $351.89
What do you think. Is this the best bang for that $350 buck?
