If you want to go CHEAP cheap then there's an MSI Z77 board on Newegg that's both full ATX and $80 after rebate with free shipping. It has no heatsinks on the VRMs though so you probably wouldn't be doing any crazy overclocking with it.

:pfp:

 

God god... I didn't even realize the one El_Capitan linked to was matx.

I tried to build something that would let you upgrade easily in the future. You can't run dual GPUs or anything on the original board I linked but it is a Z77 and beefy enough for decent overclocking should you decide to drop in an unlocked quad.

 

Smart response is just so awesome I had to fit it into the budget. :lol:

I'm thinking I'll probably stick with single GPUs, however I don't know what the future holds so who knows?

 

And SRT looks pretty sweet and I would like to get an SSD at some point (just get one now you idiot!) so thats a plus there.

Well you said $300...and you can get an SSD for $300 along with the rest of your upgrade. Or, save $60 and just get the CPU, mobo, and RAM. :lol:

 

It's amazing how much you can get for a couple hundred bucks these days.

That i3-2100 is faster for almost everything than an aging Phenom II and especially any Athlon II: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/102?vs=289 It absolutely murders one of the highest-clocked AMD quads you can buy in games as well. :cheers:

I know I said AMD in my first post, but its looking like Intel will be a better path in the long run.

Honestly unless you can find an amazing deal on a Phenom II X4 (and one of the high-clocked ones at that) and an AM3/AM3+ motherboard there's no real reason to buy an AMD rig over a similarly-priced Intel machine.

the Athlon2 x4 (640 i think ) will unlock 2 cores and L3 6mb the Phenom2 X4 960T ( on some )will unlocks aswell

Both chance, and both hard to find because of their popularity. Both also slower than the i3. :lol:
