[I hope this is the right place to post such a question]
My 4.5 years old PC kinda died on me,
and it was a limiting DAW back when it worked perfectly so I decided to upgrade my system.
I'm pretty low on funds, so I figured I can stick with my
1. old case
3. Graphics card(Nvidia 9500GT) [or use intel graphics that will come with the new CPU]
4. Hard Drives
5. Burner, Screens, Keyboard etc...
and just buy a new MotherBoard, CPU, and RAM.
What would you suggest to get for a budget of about 350$-400$ ?

A real dilemma is whether to go amd or intel, most ppl suggested i5, but there's some suggesting amd.
I think that's the no1 question for me to solve...
I think a good L3 Cache is important for my kind of uses...
