Since that i3 would handily outperform a top notch Core 2 Duo from a few years ago, isn't that cheap and fast today?
I want to build a cheap but fast desktop to start gaming and for photoshop(CS6) editing. Only problem is, I would need to build it on the cheap. I already have a Case, 450w PSU, and Monitor. Possibly a Graphics card out of my current computer.
What I would need is a:
OS(Which I might be able to get for cheap)
What's a Good/cheap Mobo and CPU I can get? I have no problem buying used. I was thinking for the processor either a AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Ed. or a I3-2100(This probably being the better?)
Other thing I'm seeing is Complete towers for around $300 new with i3's windows 7 etc.. Would it just be better to go this route?
