Cheap build. Recommends?
so im forced to get my next PC sooner than expected by some unfortunate circumstances
so it cant be the beast i wanted, but whatever

SKU: 963629

this build comes to 594 at microcenter

notes:
i can get theGigbabyte GA-78LMT-S2P Socket AM3+ 760G mobo for free, vs the one chosen, that knocks off 60 bucks.

im interested in any <200 before rebate gtx 550ti, gtx 460,gtx 560, hd6850, hd6870

other cpus
phenom IIx6 1055t-(120), PIIx6 1090t black(160), fx4100 black(105), PIIx4 840 (60)

the fx4100 and x4 840 do not give rebate on mobo the gigabyte is 60 and the asus 100

another build is the x6 1055t + gigabyte board = 509

this is not counting card/case changes

Try Newegg, there prices are often far better than Microcenter


#3

dell outlet + coupon + low-profile card = best deal if you live in the states


#4

Cheapest deal yes, but I don’t trust Dell hardware.
Bad experiences trouble shooting other people’s PCs.

If willing to spend around 600$ get this barebones from TigerDirect [http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1409689&CatId=333

With 100$ rebate it ends up being $615.99](‘http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1409689&CatId=333’).
