CPU Clock Rate



I needed a computer with Dual monitors For trading was using an old old hp with XP and needed Windows 10 this is my build. I had an employee who uses this web site put together a computer for me http://pcpartpicker.com/list/hr3fyf. I didn't quite want to spend that much money. So I searched Ebay for a micro ATX motherboard and cpu combo and after much searching settled on this one. Being my first build i didn't know how to install PS or should I say I didn't know that a cx750 PS needed to be split from 8 prong to a 4 prong to power cpu so that took me a day to figure out. In the End it works. I have a 3.0 ghz cpu to put in going to get a quad core to put in. I think this mother board for being from 2008 isnt to bad.

Part Reviews


For My First Case it is good. One thing is I recommend a modular power supply. I used allot of zip ties with the CX750 to get extra wires out of way.

can this even beat a Xbox 360??

I was curious when you posted this and kinda upset but then I read your other post, I am new to this site which is really cool. I looked up specs on 360. it runs a 3.2ghz tri core. Thats all it beats my build in and my mother board can be upgraded to a quad core that will be better. I didnt build this pc to game I just needed dual monitors and Windows 10 and now I have that. As well I liked building it for cheap and have a new hobby.. lol

not sure that you need a 750w power supply for that build. A 300w would have been better

I got it from a friend for a good deal and I can move it to a different build
