Default After years of socket 939

I'm back from deployment and going to upgrade... I have 400 and change... the rest of the system I have
I figure this is a good bang for the buck since I'm not gaming like I used to... what d'ya think?

Looks sweet to me.

If you don't mind Corsair RAM you might want to look at this combo...

LMAO... I was just looking at that one as well!

but I also did see this little build... so now which one would actually be better for the money...

Newegg.com - ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition Deneb 3.6GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDZ975FBGMBOX
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
this one is dang near 80 less... Hmmm I smell smoke from all the thinking in the room!

I'm sure the AMD system will work fine, but the Intel system is a better overall performer so it would be the better long term investment.

That's what I'm thinking too, but, like the rest of us, I'm thinking about the money as well... in the grand scheme of things, 80 bucks isn't that much... BUT it could mean upgrade AND a bill payment. LOL
