Re: My friends low end budget... look good?
ya, first of all thats a socket 939 cpu, and for that price you could get a dual core AM2 instead. also that ram is ddr2, and the mobo only supports ddr ram. Last, that videocard aint cutting it, at least get a 8600gt. What is your budget? if you want to spend $375 then its manageable, but you can get cheaper stuff on newegg.com. Are you in the US?
New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
