My old PC:
ASUS P5K-E WIFI (2008 era) (Custom BIOS)
Intel Core 2 Duo (3.2GHz)
8GB (4x2) DDR2 (in Dual Channel) pff Corsair I think
NVIDIA 560GTX videocard
Intel i5 (4th Gen) Haswell 3.1 GHz
8GB (2x4) DDR3 Kingston (in Dual Channel) Sporty looking with "heat spreaders"
Corsair 500W "quiet" PSU <- I brought this back for a refund
Cost (around €360)
Stuff I kept:
Kingston 120 GB SSD (Windows 8.1)
1TB Seagate Barracuda (Sata 3)
LG DVD-RW (Sata II?)
Coolermaster Midi Tower
AOpen 500W PSU
Stuff I still want:
Optical backplate connector for my Cambridge Soundworks THX 250D (ordered and shipped) <- this is not included with the motherboard?
Blu Ray (quiet) DVD-RW etc player, but I have to research this first
It wasn't too long ago that I got the SSD and was really impressed with the bump in speed, but my network connection kept failing in the past couple of weeks, and the front panel USB ports too (a reboot recovered it all for varying times) but I must say I am well impressed with this new build, especially now that I don't need my noisy video card, the dual monitor setup on hdmi and dvi works great
I broke the first motherboard by installing the CPU wrong, meaning I had to pay another €87 for a new one, but that was somewhat compensated by bringing back the PSU (it was damaged and I forgot my PSU is reasonably new and already 500W).
