Been out of the game a while. Looking to build a new computer.
Well haven't built a computer in ages, as you can probably tell from the joindate/signature and i'm a bit out of date with the current hardware. i'm basically looking to build a computer for around $500ish (dont need monitor,keyboard,mouse,speakers etc.) Main functions will be school related and I don't plan on doing much gaming.
Now I plan on doing my own research for this build, but if anyone could give me some quick information on new hardware to assist my research it would be greatly appreciated (ie intel vs amd and all that).
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6420
ASUS P5N-E SLI nVIDIA nFORCE 650 SLI
CRUCIAL BALLISTIX 2GB 667MHZ 3-3-3-12
RADEON X1950 PRO
