Re: First Computer Design suggestions please!!!
That Motherboard that Rohan suggested will work with you CPU.
Is the only thing your going to be using be school or are you going to do any gaming?
You might want to get a better PSU also. Most of the bad reviews have to do with a bad PSU and since your CPU is a 125w CPU you might want to go ahead and go the safe route and get a better rated PSU.
Your Case without the PSU 64.99 after MIR
OCZ 500w Modxstream 44.99 after MIR
So it is only about 10 bucks more expensive than your original setup but you are not only getting a more powerful and better rated PSU but its also modular so you can take off the wires you arent using to clean up the clutter and have better air flow.
