help with cheap build with some components I already have

#1AngurvadalPosted 12/3/2013 5:48:10 AM
I have an ati radeon 4850, a hard drive, a ssd, 4 gb ddr3 1600mhz ram, an earthwatts 650w psu, and an atx case. I need a cheap motherboard and CPU to go with these for some lite gaming (l4d2, telltale games, ps1/ps2 emulation).

Plan on building a whole new computer by the end of 2014 but I need something now as I'm currently computer-less

The relatively old 4850 makes me suspect these are parts you got from an old build, which raises the question: which type of RAM is it? (DDR2 or DDR3)

because if it's DDR2, we're not going to get very far.

They are from an old build, but the old build had a 6950 which I gave to my brother. Everything else is newer than the 4850 and the memory is DDR3.

This all depends on your budget, most of the other specs are irrelevant.

sorry i did forget to include budget

I'd prefer less than $200, but the closer to $100 as possible would be preferable since I only plan on having the computer for maybe half a year.

Would that work? I'm not a PC expert, and I've never had an AMD CPU so...

Edit: only 2 memory slots so hopefully its 1x4GB or 2x2GB

You could go for the AMD FX-4130 if you want to stay close to that 100 dollar mark.
