    Need a new computer and thinking I will just build one instead of getting one loaded down with bloatware.
    Can anyone recommend cases, boards that work well together.
    I dont need a gamming machine, but something decent for graphics and everyday tasks. Something to handle the new windows7 so I dont need to upgrade again for when i switch to 7.
    A couple usb's on the front as with audio jacks. Cdburner, card reader, dont need any glass sides or fronts.

    I would like to add that if I was going to build one now, I would look for a mobo with usb 3.0 and sata III capability for possible upgrading in the future.

    I'd get a 50 dollar mobo, with a GMA chip, if you plan on 7. Easy.

    not trying to hijack the thread but i think a mod can post a thread regarding 'where to find pc-shops with good reputations"
    in different cities,locations..just to be in the safe zone.
    for people like for example here,they want to buy new parts,other would like to buy new systems.close home.
    becuase stores like bestbuy,etc=forget it.
