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
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
