Do you recommend a case, or should I just keep my cheap one that only has fan holes on the back? XD

woe96 has a good build going there.

The i3 2100 is a pretty darn good CPU for the price. It's comparable to a 955 Black Edition Quad Core. It might lose on some programs that take use of all the cores, but for gaming it will be ahead.

I would replace the power supply with an Antec Neo Eco. I bought one for a friend and it's affordable and good quality.

  • AMD Phenom II x4 955 OEM - $76.84 shipped ($74.49 + $2.35 shipping) after code TEACHPC5 [Superbiiz]
  • ASRock 770 iCafe - $62.56 shipped ($55 + $7.56 shipping) [Newegg]
  • Xigmatek GAIA SD1283 - $20 shipped

    At $159.40 this is a hard combination to beat. It costs less than the i3 + H61 config mentioned above while provding a board with more expansion potential, a more consistent gaming experience with the improved multitasking of 4 true cores, and overclocking ability that will enable the 955 to pull closer to/ahead of the i3 2100, while outputting less noise thanks to a bigger fan.

Thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciate it. But I also have another question. Would have a bad Computer Case with the lack of Ventilation harm the computer in any way?
