I want some good suggestions for a motherboard - processor - memory bundle that can serve as a base for a PC that can heavy 3D games like Microsoft Flight Simulator X and ArmA 2.
I don't want the leading edge stuff that you pay through nose for, nor do I want stuff that is on its way to being obsolete. Let's say the price would be around $300.
I'd like to know about current Intel sockets and processors, and current AMD stuff.
Also, what kind of hard drive technology are they using these days?
