$250 cpu/mobo/hsf

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I need some help. It's almost Christmas time, and I haven't come up with a concrete choice for a cpu and mobo. I keep was thinking about getting an Asrock Am3 Extreme3 and an Phenom II Zosma, but it might be future proofed enough until christmas next year.

So I want to ask you guys, if you had $250, what cpu/mobo/heatsink combination would you get?

I also want to overclock and do most likely a lot of gaming.

I don't have a cpu or motherboard.

Ripjaws 4gb 1600mhz
Sapphire Radeon 5750 Vapor X
WD Caviar Blue 500gb
OCZ Fatal1ty 550w
Zalman Z9 Plus

I would go with this.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.762345

And grab a CM 212+ cooler. For gaming, that board and processor won't hold you back.
