    I checked those pieces and I think i might go with them, but what if I overclocked the Phenom to about 3.8 hopefully and changed the motherboard to a GIGABYTE GA-870A-USB3? Would it be worth it?
  3. What is your budget again? And what are the parts you have to have?
  4. we can probably assemble something for you if you used the build advice template. your build currently is no good

    My budget is around $600, I don't think it matches with the parts i posted earlier. There is no part I have to have, but i would prefer being able to use a graphics card instead of integrated graphics.
