By on
Right now there are a number of quality options for budget-conscious users looking to build a new computer. The AMD Phenom II X2 processor series, for example, will get you a fine deal of processing power at just $110 for the 3.2GHz flagship part. Combine this with the affordable AMD 785G based motherboards selling for around $70 and you have the makings of a seriously good value platform.
However, if you are willing to part with a little more cash, then the new Intel Core i3 series might be the way to go.
