My System Specs


Thanks for the replies.

I'm wanting the DDR3 so I dont have to upgrade in the future and can just drop another 4GB in.

My only hesitation with the Athlon II x4 620 is the mixed reviews.
I did a lot of research into it and its starting to look like that'll be the CPU I go with.
Just too bad its over the $100 mark, but i guess what can you expect for a quad core regardless of L3 cache.

Do you think the
Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB 7200RPM 32MB cache SATA HDD
would faster than the
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache SATA2 HDD?
I have no experience with anything SATA, last time I built a computer IDE and AGP was the standard haha.

Kayen, what mATX AM3 boards are you looking at?
