Hello all and thanks for any help you can lend me. This is my first post on these forums but i've read through them on and off for the past several years... I have a question about a budget build. I have some parts from my current system I will be recycling into the new... but I'm looking at building a system that will be able to play current gen games and (hopefully) the near future games (even if not on the highest settings...) I have about $400 that I'd be willing to spend, but if I have to flow over a bit I would do that. I have a 500W power-supply to work with so I'll need to stay within that power range... or upgrade (assuming the power will be plenty). From what I've read I believe a Phenom II x3 would be good, and I'd like DDR3.... so which motherboard/CPU/memory/video card setup would anyone recommend?
