  1. Sorry for bumping this thread, But i Have too without voiding another rule, of making a whole new topic. it has been buried by the other topics. Sorry, and any help please? (it was on page 3...)

    I personally would have gone with Intel for gaming since the i3s crush the AMD CPUs. The $70 Pentiums oust every AMD chip below the X4 960.

    Other than that, it looks fine. Don't know if Kingston's RAM will turn out to cause problems with it's 1.65Vs. Most newer Intel boards have issues with anything other than 1.5V, but I don't know if AMD is the same way.
  3. yeah that was a reason i went with amd, 1. no problemo with that, and 2 I can possibly unlock a hexacore or pentacore with the unlocker.
  4. (I do engineer work, i need a shitton of cores) those i3s are crap IMO because of dual core... lol i need 4+

    But is this my best bang for the buck, or can someone put together a better build with 600$ (700 with os)

    Well since no one else is helping lol xD well i dont care, my question was kinda answered, im just gonna let this forum "ForumCide" And die down, thanks for all the responses Im not choosing a BEST ANSWER
