The best performance for the least $$$
I'm going to give a short description of my current set up with the hopes of you guys maybe helping me pick out a decent mobo, some ram, and a good chip that will work well with some of the other stuff I have.
Stuff to keep in mind:
-I game (halflife2, Left4Dead, Fallout3) as well as multitask (photoshop lightroom + Photoshop Cs4)
-I'd like to keep as much of my current equipment as possible
-I multitask ALOT
-The budget should go no higher then $500.00 usd but I'd like to stay around $300.00 if possible (very possible that it may not be logical to stay that low)
Thanks ahead of time and here we go.
550w but can't remember exactly which brand. I know I dropped like $70.00 on it so it isn't a low quality psu. (I got the lecture on how important a good psu really is right before I bought it.)
