Need advice on buying components for AMD computer.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
If you've seen my previous thread I was looking at Tigerdirect barebone kits.
Now, after listening to the people on the forums, I've decided to get all the parts seperately. I have a budget of about $350($360 at most)

I'm trying to get the most bang for my buck, but this is my first time doing this. I want to make sure I get the best parts I can.

For processors I'd like an X6 or X4, though I'd really like an X6 unless there is an X4 that outperforms that specific X6.

Hard Drive at least 320 gigs

Memory at least 4 gig DDR 3

DVD Drive

PSU( I have no clue about which are good)

Fans(if needed)

Any suggestions?

I've been searching hard and have some ideas, but I really want to come to the people who know all about this stuff on the forums.

No video card?

If you need one, switch the motherboard for an 880g to get onboard graphics.

Its better than nothing.

Good luck with your new comp btw!
