not sure(still looking but will take suggestions)
I was wanting it to cost around $500 but it can go a little over
If you have any suggestions on better parts to get or ways to lower the cost.
I would also like to know what a good motherboard would be since I am not really sure what to look for. I do not need a lot of features since I do not plan to overclock this computer. I Just want a basic motherboard that is reliable.
