Mobo and PSU suggestion etc.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
OK so I just got the Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6420 for 50 bucks =3 for a nice guy off craigslist with the thermal paste and intel fan and all.

I also have a 500gb seagate HD for free hehe.

And a 9600 or a 9800 (haven't seen it for awhile =x) video card i think sadly I don't have it right now cause im currently letting a relative use it for the time being.

So to the point I am trying to get a Mobo and a PSU to go with it and maybe some ram but I have a few sticks that are ddr and ddr2 but I wouldn't mind paying a little more on top to get ram. The boards I have in mind so far are these ones:

GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Foxconn P41A-G LGA 775 Intel G41 ATX Intel Motherboard

My good friend who is part of OCN gave me this suggestion but he said to double check on here. If there are any other suggestions please I'm open to it.

As for PSU these are the picks:

CORSAIR Builder Series CMPSU-500CX 500W ATX12V v2.3 Active PFC Power Supply


Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7,i5" Power Supply

As for the case I'm not exactly sure what I have now but for a future reference I'd like to see what case anyone suggest to get. Also any other suggestions for anything I'm welcomed to hear it cause I'm still learning about computers so yea....need a lot of advice.

Also note I am ultimately trying to get a better computer regardless of anything cause I'm running on a P4 chip right now and it's not fun and trying to play the game Vindictus without much lag.

I'd go with the Gigabyte and the Corsair between those.
