Looking to replace my aging desktop
I'm looking to replace my aging desktop in my sig. It's treated me well for years now, but I think it's time for it to be put out to pasture.
Yes, I do have a powerful HTPC, but it's not exactly comfortable to do work or even just general browsing for long periods of time on the HTPC.
I'm considering a dual core Intel CPU with I guess a crossfire capable motherboard, just in case I get the urge to game, but I really have no clue where to start.
Not looking for anything as high end as my Asus Maximus board, and actually, I'd like to stay away from Asus for this build.
I'd really appreciate some recommendations on what motherboard and Intel CPU to go with and from there I can pretty much find the rest of the parts, which some will just be transplanted from my current desktop (ie: HDD, Optical drives).
