Hey all, My name is Xavier. I've lurked around here the past few weeks and just recently built a budget system from new and old parts. I haven't built anything in years, but was amazed at how inexpensive parts can be now. Picked up a Phenom II 560 black cpu with a MSI 785gtm-e45 (board was free). I'm looking forward for some advice and tips from the forum.

Hey Xavier. I been lurking around here for a long time. There is so much great advice and many helpful people. You should beable to get a nice overclock on that phenom if thats something your into. Thats an okay board for free. I prefer Gigabyte and Asus for mobo's but hey when its free you cant complain. Welcome to overclock.net
