  2. you just want the motherboard?

    *EDIT* if you want the whole thing including CPU your dreaming for 250
  3. everything, if its not possible then whats the best setup for under 250?


  4. Thats $340 and doesnt include windows

    I suppose if you got a PSU that will blow up a month later, used a cardboard box as the case you may get nearer $250

    *EDIT* seriously though it dont really get cheaper than the above unless you buy bad parts. You could maybe shave $20 getting a smaller HDD and if you have a friend with a desktop borrow their DVD drive to install your stuff rather than buy a DVD drive
  5. ok, thanks for the help but just a quick question. about how much fps would the his radeon hd4850 512mb ddr3 give me in minecraft?
  6. Best answer
    I honestly have no idea and cant find a benchmark. I do know minecraft is CPU bound and your likely better off getting an Intel CPU if its just this that you play or if you want AMD get a Phenom II on an AM3+ motherboard its alot stronger than a crippled llano (that athlon).
