yeah, but a tri core is rly cheap right now, and the overhead is wayyyyy more then you will get out of that.

That looks decent.

Why don't you find out exactly how much your dad is going to give you before you finalize a build. . .

yeah... im just afraid to ask him :X

i feel like he is willing to buy the whole thing... but, i dont want to go all out on this thing because
A) hes cheap, and so am i
B) i dont feel so great about the while building thing
C) i dont want to wring him out for tons of cash lol

A) No biggy. Lot's of us are.

B) Hey, you have an entire community here to help.

C) Just show him the current list and see what he says. The worse he can do is say no. :D

true... i will probably show him coming up here soon...

i probably won't order these parts until summer is here...

how long do the parts take to ship? and how long would a first time build take?

also, what do you think about the processor? will there be bottlenecking? and is it easy to overclock this one like prodigy said w/o buying an aftermarket cooler?

and is that case good? cuz its made of plastic... and, idk
