I am buying this build tonight....

Light weight gaming, high intensive 3D apps, CS3, AMD, etc.

As I said, my budget is 500$ + or - 50

My main question is, do I go with the 435, the 250, or the 545.
I am torn. No one will answer me straight!!!

This is what I got:

250 vs. 550 vs. 735

The reason I did not list a GPU or motherboard is because I can not seem to find an AM3 that meets my needs and has a decent onboard video for under 80$, with good ratings. Please list some nice mobos with onboards. I am planning on buying a GPU later and crossxing.

THANK YOU! Happy thanksgiving!

Sorry about this, billydomaks. Your threads got caught up by the forum's anti-spam software and were moderated. I guess because of all the links to the parts you want to use and you being a new member and all. I went ahead and approved both threads but since they are duplicates I will just close this one out.

And :welcome: to OCForums!:clap::thup:
