Check out my new rig
i just built a new desktop (in my sig), so what do ya think? opinions welcome...i was trying to keep to a 500 dollar or less budget which i was able to do. was thinking of trying to do a small overclock to maybe 3.0 to 3.2 on that 2.8 chip, but just want to do what i can get with using the stock heat sink/fan and probably not messing with overclocking the memory at all (step by step instructions please if you know because i've never done it before). don't do any gaming really...just a general purpose home pc for surfing with some light photo/video stuff.
