Cheap Build Help

Hey, I'm new here and need some help. I'm trying to build a new computer, not for super gaming or anything, just for everyday stuff. I'm making it a dual core with 4GB of ram.

This is a link to my build:

I have everything picked out, except a power supply and hard drive (nothing important ;))

Any suggestions, hopefully keeping this build under $350

Also, I'm gonna use ubuntu and old mouse/keyboard/monitor, so I don't need those things.

Any help is appreciated :)

  1. That'll be hard with any new hard drive. They're running $150.

    Isnt 2x2 better though? Then it does dual Chanel right?

    Also, the reviews on newegg for that mobi aren't so great, it seems to break down for a bunch of people... Any power supply recommendations though?
  3. Dual Channel does not offer much of an improvement. There's an increase in performance but you won't notice it.

    It really depends on your mem slots. If it's only 2 like the mobo i posted then 1 single 4gb would be best so that you can still up to 8gb.

    With 4 mem slots, then 2x2x2x2 would be good too.
