    Sounds great but abit pricey for me right now xD id love to get it but ill be returning my $130 CPU and my $50 MB, so i kinda gotta get something close or maybe $10-$20 differences without spending so much, or the gf is going to kill me xD


    ill look into that Lehsyrus! thanks! abit pricey as well lol. i just lost my job, so i cant really spend that much right now as much as i would love to! i was thinking a low end i3 or i5 with a cheap 3.0 USB 8-16GB Ram supported board.

    Intel Core i5-3330 Ivy Bridge 3.0GHz (3.2GHz Turbo) $190
    ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel $85

    Thats not to bad at all! i spent about $130 on the CPU and $50 or so on the board, so returning it i would get more then half the price of what ever i am buying. iv been wanting an I5 for sure and i want a good board, something less cheap lol

    okay.. but im not to sure if that CPU is good for gaming. im guessing if you have a graphics card for those games that run smooth , it should be good. i would also research the i5 3330.
