I think i'll be planning to put in a modern dual core processor (core 2 duo if i'm not mistaken, it can get confusing
) but yeah from what i've gathers i'de be going on an intel based CPU (probably Q6600.), since i will eventually play the newer games. This is because, i buy used parts of the market, i don't like the prices of "high-end" gear since the prices are ridiculous for the performance (they'll all drop in good time).
My plan as of now is to get a fairly decent motherboard if i can find a good deal. Start off with a c2d cpu to hold me off until i can afford a quad core. As for the other parts (RAM,PSU,GPU) those will also be upgraded if i find the right price.
Kinda Cheap but hey thats the way i am
I'm kinda eyeing XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard as the motherboard i'm going to pick. How does that sound?
Maybe this (these are CDN prices)Motherboard + Q6600 CPU
- 3504 x 1GB - 70 after MIR
or 4 x 1GB - 60 after MIR
Both are 800MHZ (don't think i should oc yet)XFX GeForce 8600 GT XXX
- 80 after MIR
