Need help on extremely low budget gaming rig? - Page 5

post #41 of 49
Only two new high end MSI mobos have more than 4+1 or 4+2 phase.
Nothing with a 3+1 (regardless of quality or heatsinked), cheap 4+1, unheatsinked 4+1, or MSI below 8+2, should be used to power any 125W or higher processor.

Its good to know you can rely on biostar for low end boards too! I built a buddy a SB rig with a biostar board and it was fantastic!

I would get one of these boards instead

I'm building my fourth PC of the year. All of them >$800 tax-in. I completely agree with this post. In the sub-100 price bracket, you can't beat Asus or Gigabyte - though Asus has my vote. Expressgate is (for whatever reason) a very popular option. As for the PSU, consider staying away from the CM - call it an insurance policy...

Couple good cases for you as they are very subjective

Coolermaster Elite 430

HEC Blitz (Personal recommendation due to coming with multiple fans, bottom mount psu, and good cable management options, and its already black inside)
It's so little!

There's a couple. What you want to look for first is airflow, along with cable management since they're relevant to each other. If you can, get a bottom mount PSU. After that, it's totally aesthetics, but to each his own.
