Asus gonna cost about 160 usd, 298 LT in our currency smile.gif and cpu... ummm OVERPRICED this time biggrin.gif its gonna cost maybe twice here as asus mobo:D

You've got REALLY expensive prices over there then. eek.gif The M5A97 is $99 USD here, and the Phenom II 960T is about $120 USD....here in the States.

Mind sharing what sites you can shop from, and your spending limit in your native currency? Preferably sites that are in English, or can be easily translated.

Well that just it, PCs are an investment. To build something thats going to have worthwhile preformance increase off your current system, your going to have to wither buy a Quad core Socket FM1 APU, or a Phenon II X4. Ive cheaped out when building rigs before, you learn fast that its not worth it. I would get at least a A8-3850 {though I think the one I previously link was better and cheaper). Or get a Phenom 955 or higher, or even a 960T if you can. Either way youre looking at 110USD+ for the CPU. Now since you dont seem to have a graphics card, a normal socket AM3 or FM1 board would do.

english is not a problem for me smile.gif big problem is shipping from USA, it costs for even small items something like 48 USD and plus our customs can put some big vages for that item, that vage depends on that they can find in market or just had thought how much its gonna cost, so this setup like u said 219USD if i did my math good, and plus maybe 50 for shipping, thats gonna be 269, plus some customs vages maybe half of that price, yeah our country politicians and toher guys who sit up there make money to their pocket which is better than to remake some things to allow customer buy from other countries easily smile.gif sorry if i said something wrong, not much having time to conversations in english but im trying as i can biggrin.gif

ok had time to look on that site, and wow its fo real that old e6850 in some bechamarks kicks a...s to that amd? but tha im picked in first post has 4mb chache
AMD Athlon II X4 631, socket FM1, 2.6 GHz, 4MB, 100W, BOX
Athlon II X4 (Quad-Core)
Socket FM1
2.6GHz
FSB 2000
cache [L2] : 4
100W, 32nm
Quad

I had a E6600 at 3.1ghz and It played Skyrim flawlessly at high settings with 2 gigs of ram and a Radeon 4770. My Phenom x4 at 3.8ghz still hiccuped when exiting or entering a new zone. They really are good CPUs.

lol

poor guy is probably wondering what happened to his thread....

mr one, is there a particular reason why you wanted to switch from your current Intel setup to a FM1 setup? Do you need a low power consumption system or are you just simply looking for something different? It looks like you are using onboard graphics and are looking to set up a cheap system for some light gaming and basic computing but I may be wrong.

*edit* I see in my absence there has been many more posts. I believe my post is rendered irrelevant.

I've seen far worse English, you're doing really good. wink.gif

As far as shipping something from the States over to you, honestly USUALLY its cheaper to just buy in your own country. Because of those exact reasons actually, the customs tax and shipping costs. It ends up not really being worth it, unless the person shipping it to you claimed a very low value on it (which would lose any insurance).

If thats the case, FM1 socket is the way to go. any APU will be more then enough power for LoL and Dota.
