You're going to need an operating system.
ya i got that already[QUOTE=alien_guy;35219696]You're going to need an operating system.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=flamingo57;35219717]ya i got that already[/QUOTE] Why do you have two threads for this?
Don't go AMD. Get an i3 instead.
[QUOTE=Chubbs;35220080]Don't go AMD. Get an i3 instead.[/QUOTE] you cant with that mobo
[QUOTE=mastfire;35220306]you cant with that mobo[/QUOTE] no shit. get a pro 3 gen 3 and an i3 2100 (2500k if you have enough money) or if you can wait until next month, ivy bridge will be coming out. The next generation of intel processors. You can see performance of the new chips, and if it's not enough to warrant you buying one of them, the sandy bridge prices will be down a bit.

[QUOTE=Chubbs;35221175]What relation to each other are your parents?[/QUOTE] why does it matter? your post has nothing to do with the topic
[QUOTE=mastfire;35221252]why does it matter? your post has nothing to do with the topic[/QUOTE] I was just wondering where your amazing cognitive abilities came from is all. It takes a real genius to realise that it is impossible to buy an Intel chipset mobo.
[QUOTE=mastfire;35221252]why does it matter? your post has nothing to do with the topic[/QUOTE] he's implying you're indbred. nimrod
Depending on when you're buying, $160($145 after rebate) GPU with lifetime warranty [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150561&cm_sp=DailyDeal-_-14-150-561-_-Product[/url]
i was think intel for the cpu but amd is good for the money
[QUOTE=flamingo57;35224203]i was think intel for the cpu but amd is good for the money[/QUOTE] No it really isn't. That died when Sandy Bridge launched a year ago.
[QUOTE=flamingo57;35224203]i was think intel for the cpu but amd is good for the money[/QUOTE] Except an i3 2120 is pretty much better than most of AMD's line up whilst being a whole lot cheaper.
My Suggestions Get an AM3+ Board. The AM3 has abit of age on it. AM3+, as I recall, support AM3 as well. It shouldn't be that costy, and it will give you upgrade options for the future. Your video card is alright, however I personally prefer EVGA. Their GTX 550Ti would also do you good for a little bit cheaper. [url]http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7114146&CatId=3473[/url] I'd also recommend going for 2x4GB instead of 2x2GB. Patriot has a 8GB pack for about $15 more, but you should be able to find the same thing with a brand of your choosing.

Having upgrade options in the future doesn't mean much when that upgrade is AMD piledriver which will bring nothing but a 10-15% increase over Bulldozer. It'll do nothing against Ivy Bridge.

If he's buying in the i3 range an Ivy Bridge chip could keep him waiting until Q3 2012.
