A budget build/upgrade

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am stuck on the mainboard in which I do not which to choose:

or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128076

As for the last one, I bought one before for my uncle and it works great, but I kind of want to slide to other brands to try them out. As you can see, I am avoiding Asus for now, and they are expensive anyways. Need it under $60 for the mainboard. I really want to try out the one by Abit, but there are no reviews so I fear weary about that.

And wondering if I should get the E2140, 60, or 80, as well.
I want a good cheap and SMALL CPU cooler, so I can try for "some" overclock.

This is the case I am getting. Looks nice and good enough. I do have a case, but too big for the micro. And this one is just the size I need and it has free shipping too and is cheap.

Thank you for looking in advance.

edit:
I do have some ValueRAMs 1gb (512x2), I know they don't overclock well, but I don't want to buy new memory if I can't sell these or trade these away. lol..

This case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ooler%2bmaster

was another of my choice, but cost too much because of shipping. If anyone can find it for cheaper that'd be nice.

I vote against abit and asus, i've used foxconn, biostar, and gigabyte boards with good success. all are decent budget boards. Im using a gigabyte now, and while it doesn't clock like i expected, the build quality is good.
