Re: Can I build this myself for cheaper?

Have you already purchased the AM3+ processor? If not, the FX-4100 or FX-4170 would do well.

You could probably get the equivalent performance out of an Ivy Bridge i3 (model number 3000s) for the same price or cheaper.

An example of a good AM3+ board that meets your specifications is this Asrock: »www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···13157266

As would this Asus (has UEFI as well): »www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···13131754

Thank you, those ideas fit the bill perfectly. I will spec out an equivalent ivy bridge setup to compare.

I'd suggest using the Z77 chipset on the LGA 1155 socket.
