I am not a gamer but would like to assemble a desktop computer that's faster and better quality than the brand packages offered in computer stores. My recently deceased MB (last night, the SATA controller died) was a 9 year old ASUS P5B-E with an Intel core2 6600 @2.4GHz 32bit with 2GB DDR2 RAM. It served me well, but it's time to move on. I have some good quality peripheral equipment purchased over the years which I will be using. They include an Antec mid tower case with removable drive trays, an Antec SU430 HiPOT 430 watts PSU, a new 1GB Nvidia card , a new DVD/CD drive, a 120GB SSD for the OS system, and a Seagate Barracuda for data. I am leaning towards a recently released fast Intel i3 but would consider a similar AMD CPU, but have no clue as to the model since there are so many of them. The RAM size considered is 4GB, but again no clue whether it should be DDR3 or DDR4. and need advice for a matching quality ASUS mother board. Can anyone please recommend some hardware? Thanks in advance.
