  1. Hello everyone...
    I've recently acquired a new AMD Phenom II x2 Black Edition processor. My goal is to build a new system as a backup for my laptop. This will be my 5th system I've built and every time I seem to improve on the last setup. Well this time I've decided to see if I can build this system with some pretty decent components without busting the bank. I'm pretty excited about this, but being that there are so many different components to choose from, I figure I would see what other system builders would recommend to get the most bang for the buck. I'm looking into motherboards and video cards riight now. (unless the board has internal video on it already.)

    What kind of budget are you working with?

    Looking at each component with a $100 ceiling cost. Trying to keep within my monthly budget allowance..

    I'd advise just saving up and buying everything together if you're building a whole new system, that way you wont feel like you have to catch up, and some things may be a few bucks cheaper.
