ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: (I would like it as stable/reliable as possible)
Preliminary idea of rig:
CPU: AMD X3 445 - 2370 Bath (78$)
Motherboard: Asus M5A88-M, AMD 880G - 2640 B (86$)
RAM: 4 GB DDR3/ 1333 - 800 B (26$)
Hard Disk: WD 2TB SATA - 3990 B (130$)
DVD: LG 24X GH-24NS Sata - 640 B (21$)
Power: Cooler Master RS-500 PCAR - 1590 B (52$)
The case will be about 1200 bath (40$).
Total cost for this rig: 13,200 THB (430 USD)
I would need suggestions on the parts.
Is it more cost effective to get an Intel processor (i3-2100 or even an i5) compared to AMD (Athlon X2 260 or X3 445)?
Would I need a graphics card or is the on-board graphics enough? In case I need a graphics card do you have any suggestions on cards that support Linux?
