Shanks's New Build

PostShanks's New Build by Shanks

right as some of you might know Tuesday my pc finally blew up, 99% its my motherboard and CPU as these only things not been replaced in donkeys.

any suggestions to what CPU and motherboard i should get would be muchly helpful as i dont have the foggyest.

(if u could suggest ones that will run bf3 would be helpful )

as im off the a computer fare Saturday so if i have a rough idea what to get i wont do my usual and buy the first thing and get out of there :P

If you haven't updated your MB in a while you may also have to get DDR3 RAM
I'll assume you're on a budget but want something that'll last i recommend:
Motherboard - Asus P8Z68-V LX - £80
CPU - Intel i5 2500K 3.3GHz - £170

If you are really counting your pennies go with AMD as a short term solution:
MB - Asus M5A97 PRO 970 - £80
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz* - £110

And RAM if you need it:
Corsair 4GB DDR3 1600MHz - £25

*AMD maybe a joke at the moment but this is a nice CPU that i can personally recommend (if a good intel CPU is out of your price range).

Peace Out!
Jonny!

EDIT: I gave round about prices seeing as you said you'd be shopping around rather than buying online. Good luck. I hope you get some good deals =)

Fair play. Personally i wouldn't go with any less than the i5 2500K. It's a solid buy that will last you a good while =)
