    Ok, I told myself that if I can get under $650, I would go ahead and buy a desktop rig. Here is what I came up with. Can yall look it over and see if I am doing good here. Keep in mind that I am moving from a T8700 2.5GHZ and GTX 260M system. I already have a monitor and a DVD RW. Windows 7 is in there too, but I am not linking it. I am not looking for a beast, just something that can at least play some newer games at high settings. Would this build be better than my laptop? Keep in mind that the GTX260M is a G92b core, which translates to a GTS 250 I think.

    The big thing about going to FM1 is the motherboard price. The AM3+ boards are expensive as hell. From the few benchmarks out there, the 631 beats the Athlon II 645, which was my other option.

    Tweaked the build a bit. Going AM3+ so I can upgrade into bulldozer later.

    Going with the Athlon II X4 640 and a gigabyte mobo.
