Hello all, I'm currently at college studying IT and off to Uni next year. The time has come when i need to think about building a new rig.
The computer itself will be used for casual gaming, coding, playing films and music etc.
I'm planning to spend around £500 first of all on mobo, cpu, case, ram, HD, dvd-rewriter, and then get the rest in time.
I will definately be going with an AMD but i am stuck in two minds to go for the new AM2 socket or socket 939. I know at the moment the difference isn't all that much, and the prices are not too far apart either. The problem is, this rig will have to do me the next 5 years or so, so is it worth getting a mobo with a AM2 socket?
All ideas welcome, thanks people
