Heres my situation, 600 dollars, in college, looking to build a cpu that will be used for mostly games but i would like it to be able to handle basic word/excel ect... I've been looking at Cpu's and Mobos and wanted to know A. What mobo and cpu specifications are the most important to consider, and B. Any points in the right direction would be really appreciated. My main problem is knowing whether I am going overkill or not on buying things that are too powerfull for my needs. Thanks, Dan P.S. are Mobo + cpu deals worth it??
