My mate has just built a PC and we're both very technical people, but i'm more into the software side of things and he's into the hardware.
He's gone for the Intel Quad Core Q6600 (stepping version)
I will probably get the same processor, but i'm just wondering a couple of things;
1) what is the cheapest, but best motherboard to fit this processor? Budget would have to be about £130 MAX
2) what power supply would i need to run this system? I think my mate is going for 850w or something along those lines
3) compared to your average PC/Laptop, what will the power consumption be on this kind of spec PC? Will my electricity bill sky rocket?
I'd ask my mate but he's on holiday
