im in search of a new cpu, new mobo, and will have to get new builders vista premium.
ill have about $400-$450 bucks to work with, and vista builders will take $100 of that away. so you will have $300-350 to work with on the cpu and mobo
intel: E8400 or E8500 / or Q6600 or Q8200
amd: Phenom 9850 black edition or Phenom 9950 black edition
*list your recommendation if not listed (keep in mind, that i dont OC much so i want something running atleast 3.0 for dual and 2.4 for quad)
brands ill buy: (in order from most liked to least liked)
ausus / evga / gigabyte / foxconn / msi / xfx
if you have other brand recommendations, post em up.
other motherboard options:
*must have DDR2 800 support 4 slots(using ram from current build since i just bought it)
*must have atleast 1 pci-e 2.0 slot (not running sli so only 1 needed)
*must run one of the cpu's above
*must have sata (duh)
