    Default $500 Budget Help!

    Hi guys. I have once again turned to you wonderfully helpful people for help. I have a $500 budget and I wanted to build a PC with it.
    I wanted to buy these parts:
    • Processor
    • Motherboard
    • Power Supply
    • Case


    I was wondering exactly which ones you recommend.

    Thank you very much!

    Is this a new build or upgrades for what you already have?

    For a grand total of $330 gives room for taxes/shipping and ram although you didn't list it.

    Or you could get a better CPU

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103849 $200

    which would bring you up to $430

    $40 gets a Phenom II 965....... Still within budget constraints.
