Re: Extreme budget editing system
Yeah, I have since upgraded the PSU to the Corsair builder 600W (will cost me an extra 20, but oh well for peace of mind), which should be good for me forever, provided it doesn't fail in the first few months (which if it does, it seems to have several fail safes to NOT fry my system...and corsair has a good warranty).
I never plan to buy a video card, but if I do, it would be sub 100 bucks. If I really need to put some life in the old system down the line (in like 4 or 5 years), I'll just buy a good graphics card and better PSU.
But good to know about the 6 core. I'll probably be getting the 1050T rather than the 1100, unless I can find a deal (newegg has one today but I can't get it quite yet...). Some people suggested I cut 60 bucks off my spending and just get the x 4 and overclock it, but I don't want to be bothered with overclocking and extra cooling concerns (and bigger PSU concerns!). Again, that would be a last resort down the line when the system becomes outdated and needs and extra oomf.
