I'm starting my first complete build - and have been buying parts as I go.
I guess really my question lies in the motherboard and PSU.
I have an i5-650 (LGA 1156) and have no idea what motherboard is "best" and a reasonable price. I know it's near impossible, but I hate shelling out $100+ on anything.
I currently have a PSU (480W) that came with my Logisys case that I plan on scrapping - the reviews on the case were decent, excluding the PSU that lacks 12V+ rail.
I'll be running an older graphics card, 8800 GT. So I don't need a huge amount of power, and I doubt I'll be overclocking anything.
This is really just a budget gaming PC.
I'll try to answer any questions you have regarding the system, usage, etc.
