The choices are:
Intel Core i3-2100 integrated HD 2000 graphics (they dont stock 2105 here in aus) $120 + ASRock Z68 Pro3-M $110
AMD x4 A8-3870K integrated HD6550 graphics $145 + ASRock A75 Pro4 $95 + $? on cooling if overclocked?
AMD FX-4100 $123 + HD 6450 $33 + ASRock 970 Extreme 3 $99 + $? on cooling if overclocked?
Phenom IIs are out of stock already.
Also I may consider the i5 2320 $190 with the same Z68 mobo if it is really worth the extra $. It's not that I must get an ASRock, its just they seem to have the best value here.
Please comment on which of the above you think is the best option. Any constructive advice/feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
