post #21 of 29
yes sir saving money is the name of the game now more than ever. Those are the more than enough for what she needs. I just thougt the I 3 would stand up a little longer for 35 to 40 more. But I bet she will be thrilled when you fix her up thumb.gif

Well hopefully the G620 lasts a couple years and by then everything in the 1155 series will have dropped a ton and if I need to I can go pick up a newer quad for her to keep it going for another few years.

I didn't ask for multi-threaded applications either. My mom needs to be able to check her facebook and write a business email, not encode blu-rays and play GTA 4.

am3/1155 equivalent board price difference more then makes up for the spread and none of the pentiums/celerons OC.. Amd sells the superior chips in this price range, its just a fact rolleyes.gif now obviously you already got your mind made up and dont want anything to do with common sense so why are you here?

1155 has room for expansion, am3 is a dying socket. And amd does not rule this price bracket. Find me a 30$ amd chip that beats the g530 or 50 dollar chip that beats the g620. As for board price, the one I linked periodically goes as low as 30$.

It sounds like youre the one with your mind set on something and not listening to anything else.

for one it is $35 and $50 and they are in-store only, second about the board - no it doesn't tongue.gif stop making stuff up, lol
you can get an am3 board for $30 less then the board you posted, if you add up the secondary expenses to the "cheap" celerons price (mobo, trip to ms) you're pretty much on par with the x4's price of $85

that is of course if you're actually building a computer.. i mean you could just buy a cpu and have your mum stare at it while telling her it only cost 35 bucks. great plan.

I'm not making stuff up. I didn't buy it at that coz i'd like to get the system to them sooner rather than later but it does indeed drop that low.

The trip to microcenter costs maybe 5$

And of course im actually building a computer. I don't post threads just for the fun of it.
365

Upgrading my ram from 8GB to 16GB and my 21.5" 1080p monitor to a 24" LED monitor. My current ram/monitor will go in the new machine. Case, HDD, and DVD Burner are on my bench behind me, and the CPU is a few minutes away already paid for at microcenter just gotta go pick it up.

I went from a Phenom II x2 555 BE to a SB Pentium G840 and this little chip costs less than my previous from AMD, AND runs better in the games I play like Starcraft 2 and Deux EX: Human Revolution.

I was pleasantly surprised.

Anyhow this chip is to hold me off utill IB comes out for my P8P67-M Pro motherboard.
