    First of all i've been a long time notebook user (collegue :() so i decided to build/finish off my multimed pc for everyday use. Pc will be mostly used for watching movies, some light photoshop, web dev, surfing, music and some light gaming, titles like LoL, WoW, Diablo3, GW2 and hopefully last for next 2-3 years. Doubt i will upgrade anytime soon!

    Basicly i only need CPU and MBO(mATX) to fit my limited budget which is 200-220$ max. So please help/advice/suggest..

    My options so far:
    1. Can use 1156 Asrock H55m-LE and buy i3 550 for 80$ on a sale
    2. i3 2120 125$ + Asrock h77m 85$ total 210$
    3. open to any other suggestion (amd combo also)

    I rly don't know how bad is 1156 compared to 1155, not even sure if it/s worth taking but i also think that i don/t need anything stronger considering my current needs.(correct me if i/m wrong)

    Parts i got so far (mixture of new stuff and sister's "old" rig)
    24" Dell U2412HM :love:
    EVGA GTX 550 Ti 1gb
    Corsair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1600C9 8Gb (2x4)
    Corsair Force 3 60gb ssd
    WD WD5000AAKS 500GB 2x
    Noctua NH-L12
    F.Design Arc mini

    Ta!! :respect:
