little advice

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok so iv been looking into building my own system again for awhile, but my wife ask if she could get one as well so i need to try and squeeze 2 builds out of 1500 ish dollers. the easiest way i can think to cut some cost is with a cheaper motherboard and iv never used other brands then asus and msi. my question is how good are gigabyte boards in the 1150 and 1155 chip set

Gigabyte makes excellent motherboards, are you looking to game or overclock? Intel or amd? I think you could easily build two capable computers for $1,500. Do you need all peripherals, such as a monitor, keyboards and mice?

It seems to me like your primary goals here are to overclock and be able to play games, and since you're on somewhat of a tight budget, you'd be a fool to overlook amd. You'll be extremely hard pressed to beat this combo, complete with a very capable 7950...
