As the title says, I'll be building one to replace a friend's box for him quite soon. Whatever ends up inside it will have an AMD processor, a full sized ATX MB, a compatible display card with both HDMI & VGA outputs, plenty of RAM and a suitable PSU. I haven't done any deep searching yet as my latest h/w is built on a Gigabyte TA-970 'Ultra Dependable' MB with an AMD 6-core CPU, 8GB RAM & the Nvidia Geforce 8400GS video card - which is all enough for my needs. Frankly I do not even know how many cores are the current norm as its been a while since I looked... Any suggestions ?? Thanks for any helpful replies !!
