I have been here before a posted when I built my first computer. Something happened to my account but anyways. I am really into gaming so this is going to be a gaming computer. I have one that is really good. This one is going to be a backup or for friends when they come over. My budget is $623.00 that is what I have saved up on July 1st. It is going to also for when I go to lan partys. So here is what I have been thinking about getting:
: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale 1.8GHz LGA 775 Processor
I have been having trouble on picking a Mobo I kinda want mATX because smaller and ez to move to lan partys-Mobo
: MSI 945GM3-F LGA 775 Intel 945G Micro ATX
Memory: Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
Graphic Card: EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
DVD-CD ROM: ASUS Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM Drive
This is a mATX case that comes with a 500w PSU:APEVIA X-QPACK2-BL Desktop Computer Case 500W Power Supply
That is what I have right now. I am pretty sure this all is compatable with each other. I really dont know what Mobo to get tho. I don't plan to oc my cpu.
Any help on the Mobo would be nice and if you see anything wrong with the build or anything out there that is better then what I have on the list. Tell me plz. Oh, the total is $568.87 so I will have a little money left over. Thx for any help!
