Default Re: 300 dollar build?

I would grab this mobo instead:

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX 128M AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Only about 30 bucks more upfront, and it has a $10 MIR. The onboard video is a little better, and it's great for overclocking. I wouldn't bother with a dedicated card until you can spend a little more money on it.

Is it just the Kuma's that come with a cooler on the BE? My 5400+ BE did not have a stock heatsink included.

Yea, the Kuma, and the 940 Black Editions do if they're retail.


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."
