The Phenom is obsolete. Get an i3/H61 combo. Your budget calls for ghetto-ass 1GB/5400 RPM "green." Don't spend more than $50 on a case. Go roadside recycled OEM case if you can. Get a refurbished PCP&C supply for pennies on the dollar at Directron. That RAm should cost $30-35. Kill yourself before you buy Nvidia shy of GTX660/horrible value proposition even at $90. Look at AMD HD 78xx and better. No HD68xx, thanks. If you go i3, you suck if you spend more than $45 on your motherboard. If you might upgrade to I5 K-series, geeks.com Asustek z77 refurbs. Those're hellacheap. also, lrn2shop, you silly nigger.

>>30002543 and this build you just describe will blow up in about 3 days and proceed to be totally useless my goal is not to save as much money as possible its just to get a decent computer for playing older games with

>>30002388 NOPE. This entire rig is a dead end and a waste of $600. I'll brb with something decent for the same price.

>>30002595 Not really. Modern 3D accelerators put out little heat, all things considered, and therefore some pathetic Pentium 4-era OEM case can usually keep temps in the okay range. I've bought multiple Directron refurb PSUs, and all have not only worked, but come in the original box and with nary a scratch too. As for cheap-ass motherboards, a basic H61 should be okay. Spend $50 if you want a Gigabyte or something. That's a Mcdonald's meal of money, so whatever. But stuff for $45 should be okay too, as this really isn't rocket science and most people don't need eight SATA ports nor the ability to run two 3D cards. I have no idea of the quality of teh geek's.com Asustek refurbs, however if it's worth anything, I'm on my forth year of ownership of a $40 P35 refurb, running a C2D at 3.95Ghz, this plus a GTX460 wedged into a ~2000 whitebox gateway case. all running off a $25 Directron OCZ StealthXstream II 600 watt power supply. Yes. Balls-on prime-95 overnight stable. But, it's your money!

i3/6850 instead on an h61 mobo, nzxt 210 case, smaller seasonic psu, and also you only need 4 gigs

>>30002895 I looked at them under stress-testing, and they were fine. Not something to jerk off to, so not something I think of any more. Since everything is fine, I'm gonna keep on cheap-skating in a white case that hearkens to the Pentium III era and came with a ZIP drive fitted. Do as you will. Spend the extra money. Expect to gain little/nothing from it.

What you have is fine for 5+ years ago. Maybe even a bit overkill.

>>30002970 Then why are you buying a modern system? Or willing to spend the equivalent amount of money on a system that would last 3-4 years easily? Buy some core2duo shit box from craigslist for $100 and slap a refurbed GTX460 in it.

>>30003249 That's not the point, you're wasting a lot of money on an imbalanced system and an overpriced case, for the sake of playing dated games. You want to play those, that's fine, but you need to lay off the K2 for a while.

56 min later 30003367 Anonymous
>>30003322 As Rock is fine. It's Asustek's value line, and suited for builds where one needs little expansion. The really bad brands like Jetway and PC Chips are gone, and now even ECS has seriously stepped up its game. Even an extremely cheap motherboard can be wholly reasonable these days.

>>30003452 Only this time. Anyway, here's my best. I used this motherboard in my brother's build. No complaints. Worked out of the box with the i3 3220. 7770 can overclock and kicks the crud out of a 550 ti. + 12.11 gave it a ~10% boost.

I'm not sure why you wouldn't want a modern graphics card. I'm guessing you don't pay your own electric bill and don't care about saving money on power. It's not like you can't play old games with a new graphics card. >seagate There's a cheaper WD 1Tb blue on amazon if you want that >Corsair PSU Get a seasonic 520 m21ii modular if you want to spend more >MSI gpu uh...Yep.
