Default $500 budget build with quad

this person has 500 bucks and wants a q6600
Q6600 from microcenter =200
g.skill 2gb=35
mobo=?
psu=?
doesnt need it for gaming...just burning and editing stuff

so im guess a mobo with intg gfx will be good.

doesnt need anything else.

It's doable. The G3x chipsets, are like the P35s, only with integrated graphics.

If you can, look for the G33M-DS2R. From what I read, it's a pretty good overclocking motherboard on the cheap.

why dont you get a better mobo for the same price without integrated and just buy a cheapo card? you can find an open box 8 series for ~25 or an even older card for ~15

the p35-ds3l is a great mobo.
And hes getting the msi 8400gs for 35 and its brand new.

Hes never going to game so i think thats good enough for him and his uses.
