OK just looking around.
What is your price range for a mobo I will help you find one.
Im just looking for now but im a few weeks im going to try and get a mobo and cpu (AMD) Phenom2 x4 well thats what i want. So im just looking.
OK cool just to let you know ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, and Foxconn are the best brands. Stay away from ECS, Biostar, Jetway, DFI. ASROCK isn't that bad either a little on the cheap side but decent quality.
What you think about this GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131140
That brand is not the best I would go with this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102850 it a little more but better quality. You should be fine if you get it I heard of a lot of heating problems with it.
Thats the one i was looking at also. Which one has heating problems?
The Powercolor that you posted most of that brands cards are terrible. Good brands are XFX, MSI, Sapphire, HIS, Gigabyte, and ASUS.
video card would be a great upgrade.
He's not upgrading he's building.
Hows this name brand?
This case is decent quality. Take a look at it:
ANTEC THREE HUNDRED Black Mid Tower Case - $63 (Free Shipping Costs)
That's not a name brand. The case is fine but the power supply is terrible just a bunch of pretty lights an colors. It probably wouldn't power a 10 year old computer.
Come on fatback! Sure its not a good psu by our standards but, to say that it wont work on a 10yr old pc is just RIDICULOUS.
Hehe maybe but I like to get the point across I don't wont them to think it might be ok I wont them to be scared of it. I would gladly take a 500w Corsair over a 1000w Apevia.
^^ LOL so would I
But, you dont want to give them false info
I'm not given false info Apevia power supplies are crap I know because I just got rid of one:good:. Its that exact one but with the UV blue shell. It wouldn't power my system and this was before I got my 4850 and was using onboard graphics. I even RMAed it and the second one did the same thing.
Just because you had a bad run in with them doesnt mean everyone will. Catch my drift?
Anyone lets stop arguing about it and stick on topic
I've had an Apevia PSU for a couple years and it's been rock solid.
