Extreme Budget Build, need help. - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
Success! Here is my final build:

CPU: Phenom II X2 560 BE - $90 From Microcenter
Mobo: Biostar AM3 mATX - FREE With Microcenter CPU Bundle!
RAM: 2x1GB Kingston - $25 from Newegg
PSU: Coolmax 500w - $19 from Newegg
HDD: 400GB Seagate Recertified - $23 from Newegg
GPU: Old PNY 8500GT that I've had laying around for awhile
DVD: Used from old computer that I found in the garage!
Case: Used from old computer as well!

Total: $157 before tax!

Ordering from Newegg now and will use Will Call to pickup tomorrow after I get the parts from Microcenter!

Thanks for the help everyone. I incorporated some ideas from everyone

I had to build mostly from the ground up
True, but all the parts was free. Expect the shipping cost on a trade for the cpu. E6750 for an Athlon 240 and the E6750 was free too.

That's the best I could do ._.
i would go for sempron 140, cause you have a better chance to unlock it, and for mobo i would go for an nvidia chipset geforce7025/nForce 630a, form asrock with UCC function

If you are planning of trying unlocking those extra cores on that Biostar A780L3G. You need to buy some VRM coolers for it.

You should have told us you had a Microcenter near you! one of those deals would've helped a lot!

Board being a weaker 3+1 power phase I really don't recommend unlocking at all... buying a 95W quad core over that 80W Phenom II dual core may have been a better deal though. I'm sure your dad may not even benefit as much from 2 more cores anyhow.
