I think I can get about $20 on eBay if I got that case/PSU deal and sold the PSU. Then, it would be $40 for the one you recommended.. leaving $55 total for a case and quality PSU, which really isn't that bad! (I'm super thrifty My mom is EXTREMELY thrifty, too - I get it from her) So... that's not too shabby. Also, I think I can get a 17" Monitor on eBay for around $60 instead of $80, so that'll make up for it!

So there you have it, a good, well-built computer that will last, eh? Do you think that that motherboard will run Ubuntu graphics okay?

You're right! I'm going to use that one. Asus is probably a lot better than Biostar, anyway. Thanks for the suggestion! (I'm gonna change that RIGHT now )

I don't think that asus mobo has onboard graphics. The rest looks decent though.

I'll check that right now! If it doesn't, I think I'm going to go with something else :/

..............

Yepp, it doesn't. I even looked it up on another website. There were two things (Integrated audio: #### (w/e) and Video Outpout: PCi Express)

So, should I go back to the Biostar?

Thanks, though!

I Need A Mobo!!! Am3 & Ddr3!

This thread is an absolute mess. I'm not reading through 8 pages.

What is your budget?
