    +1 - Great choice, have worked with a number of them, First rate ;)
  3. My case I plan on getting is the midi r2, and it comes with a feature that I could plug in a usb 2.0 and still use my usb 3.0, just with usb 2 speeds, will that be good or what?
  4. That will work fine, if you don't have any USB 3.0 perifs there's no reason to shell out for a board that has it...and it's hard to find an $80 board with 3.0.
  5. just saying. And would you guys be able to look at my build? I know that this isn't the correct section, but you guys have been a great help.
  6. Yeah, if your budget was higher that board is the one i would suggest, we'd be happy to look at your build, go ahead and post it.

    I already have hard drive, and for my gpu I have a 630, which isn't the greatest. Since I am on a tight budget, Ill be getting the 7850 a bit later.
  8. Looks pretty good, think you'll be happy
  9. Agreed, a solid budget build, you'll be set :)
  10. Ok so even with a 630, I should be good for awhile?
  11. That would work ;)
  12. Yep again.
