I am not particularly knowledgeable of computers but I am looking to build a desktop suitable for all the family. It will be used for some games and some office type tasks. It will need to multi task so I am also stuck between going for the 4.2 GHz quad core or the 3.3 GHz 6 core processors as they are virtually the same price..
I am currently looking at these with a budget of about £500
what I am unsure on is how the mother board affects the pc. If I go for the cheaper £42 one (I don't want usb 3.0), will it hinder the pc compared to a more pricey one? does it affect the processing speed or other performance?
any info or advice would be much appreciated to help me make up my mind. Thanks very much in advance
