Hahaha. Probably. But i will say for this budget build i that i did for less than 150. Its not bad. However the case that i got everything functions to my liking but the cable management isnt the best imo. I might tinker with it more

Well. i figured id give you guys a little update on this project. couple weeks ago the motherboard decided to shit the bed because of the north bridge fan/heat sink was just dangling which more than likely caused it to die. so i picked up a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P with a core 2 quad Q9550 for 90 dollars shipped. overall not a bad upgrade for what it is and again this pc is only used as a storage and or media purposes.
