Well I have been up one side and down the other on deciding what to buy for my new upgrade untill tax season.(coz i cant wait!) I will have a MSI P45 Neo FR soon, but i will use that board for my new build come next spring(tax return!) And im sure all of you have seen a few of my threads and know that my dog got real sick , hence the reason i have to wait for a new build come march. The wife told me that i could go ahead and spend $400 on anything i wanted for my PC. Well if you read my system specs you will see that im running on a old ass agp set-up, the rig is maxxed, i cant make it any better. And that will be the wifes PC come march also. So I decided to buy a CPU, Mobo, GPU, and some ram. Just to have a good upgrade for HER, and so I can have something that can take a dual core cpu with a great OC along with the GPU power to play the newer titles untill march. I ended up buying 2 open box products from the egg, and a retail CPU and RAM. OB Sapphire HD 4850-100$ OB ASUS P5Q PRO-79$ Intel E5200 dual core 45nm-83$ ( just cause it was 99$ and Ive heard it OC's like a mofo) 2 gigs of DDR2 1066 Gskill CL5-36$ Total after shipping-314$ I got the GPU and the board in today, and the CPU and RAM will be here monday.(better be, it says it will and i got that day off!) Well here are 2 pictures of the mobo i got today(before my batteries went on me) OK guys I know its a Open box product but idk rite now. Its Xmas time and money is low, and i dont need the extras with the board and GPU. But when I get it up and running im sure i will need a few tips on OCing this E5200 on the P5Q Pro. This is my first ASUS board and just from the looks of the board it looks like a solid board. And PLEASE tell me what you think about my purchase. I really need to know what i bought wasnt a waste of money, I need all the feedback i can get. I have 15 days to return the open box items and if i made a mistake i want to know ASAP, so i can return it for the better. Thanks guys!
