Trying to PC GAME, Picked Up A Xeon E3 1230v2, NOW WHAT?
Is there a better place to post regarding input/advice on a gaming pc build?
I am tech savvy but new to PC building/gaming and have never put together a PC before. I bought a used Xeon E3-1230v2 for $25 but I am having a devil of a time finding a good motherboard for it(read: cheap) so would appreciate some help.
On ebay there are Dell lga1155 mobo's for $15 but all the Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte, MSI are $75+. I guess I'm wondering why would I spend $75+ for a Mobo when I can get one for $15?
Appreciate any and all input on this!
P.S. In case anyone is wondering. Here is my Build.. not sure why I can't BOLD or add HYPERLINKS?
CPU: Xeon E3-1230v2
MOBO: absolutely no idea, HELP!
Memory: G.Skill DDR3 1600 8gb x2
Storage: 256gb SSD Kingston KC400
GPU: R9 290 or RX 580, that I scored for $50 and $80 respectively, thoughts?
Case: Cougar MX330-G or a Sama Tank RGB - each one is $60, but Sama seems the better buy, 3 fans+RGB
PSU: BE QUIET! PURE POWER L8 700W, Will this work? have this sitting at home brand new..
