    Well im starting a new build and well its going to be nothing special for awhile as i upgrade little by little. Keep in mind that the first upgrade will be vid card, then Board, Cpu and then ram

    CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116052

    MOBO- NO IDEA YET SOMETHING CHEAP AS HELL BUT STILL GOOD

    RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231084


    I have very limited buget lol. Keep in mind that i am now using a celeron 2.4 with onboard video and take 2 or more hrs to burn a movie lol. Any other ideas are welcome


    Thanks

    LMAO i sold my old rig and now want to start building another one im not worried about OCing at all right now, Not till i get all that i needed. As i upgrade all my stuff will be traded in for the new stuff. So boardwise i just need something basic thatll work, till i trade it in for a better one, Needs to be less then 100bucks

    mmmmmmmm, how come youve sold your very decent rig, to downgrade to a makeshift system, to then upgrade again? The logical thing would have been to keep your good rig then sell it at the point you want to upgrade to a better one? (unless you got given an insane amount for your old rig, which I doubt because you dont have the cash to build your new one :()
