[quote=jflan;2082697]Noone wants their recommendation to be criticized, that is a given, but in the interest of the OP, the facts (as best we know), should be presented.
So, to rephrase, “I would not consider that Intel board because…”
Yes, the solutions are vast, but researching and floating ideas together are how we can help each other find those few shining stars.
And then after all that, the OP will go in a completely different direction :)[/quote]
You are correct there. It’s tough to come out and say that you have this and this, without knowing a total budget.
But let’s say we deal with what we have so far. Rough dollars.
1] MB - $100.00 - $200.00
2] CPU - $195.00
The rest of your pieces approx price
3] RAM 4G - $100.00 - $150.00
4] PSU 600W - 800W - $ 100.00 - $150.00
5] CASE - $100.00
6] HD - $ 100.00
7] VIDEO CARD DX10 - $200.00
8] BURNER - $40.00
Depending on the combinations you would be looking at $ 1000.00 - $1200.00 approximately.
Is this the kind of dollar figure you were looking at spending?
