|I came up with this parts list for a modest socket 1156 system. Gives me an upward CPU migration path to i5 or i7 later... |
although the Intel Core i3 is easily over-clocked to 3.50 with a temp @ 65C with stock cooler when running Everest stress test.
It looks like it would be only $10 more for 1333Mhz memory. But, I do need clarification on the memory. What's the difference between the PC3 10600/10660/10666?
Any comments, suggestions, especially for incompatibility or to make the system more cost effective, are appreciated... TIA
