Well, its my second proper build, and I'm on a budget; $265. With this, I plan on building a gaming PC. I am getting $105 + 8600 GT + 320 GB HDD (which is broken but works) by selling my Dell to a friend, and I already have $90. My main supplier for parts will be MSY, the Newegg of Australia. Their site may look a bit shifty, but I've been there before and its all good. http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/msy.htm (click the PDF Best Parts List) So far, I'm pretty sure of what parts I'm getting, except for the motherboard. CPU: Intel C2D E1200 - $45 RAM: 2 GB DDR2-800 Kingston RAM - $49 Graphics: Galaxy 8600 GT 512 MB - $40 (second hand) HDD: 320 GB HDD, with a kind of broken SATA port that has the cable soldered to it... - $30 (for being broken) Case: SHAW Xtreme-550 - $39 PSU: Either the 550 SHAW or my friend's PSU DVD Drive: Free, probably. So, with the prices all added up I have $62 (maybe more) to spend on a motherboard. I plan to buy that from MSY as well, so what ever is on the price list that is less than $65 I can buy: which one would be best for overclocking? I only need one PCI-E slot, but I'd prefer 4 RAM slots for future upgrades. Also, any suggestions on alternative parts sourced from the internet would be nice. I plan to overclock the hell out of these parts (ignore the fact that I'm using a stock Intel cooler), so it will go VROOM! All help is good!
