During the rebuild process, I ended up with a spare mobo, the GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD5-B3. I have everything I need to build another box except the proc. This is just going to be a big file store or, maybe a surfing box for my kids. So, I don't need a lot of juice.

So, what is the cheapest hack-compatible 1155 proc?

Thanks,

KM

Probably the Pentium G630. There are several builds using this CPU. It is a socket 1155 Sandy Bridge CPU so it will fit your SB board just fine. You will, however, need a gfx card with this CPU.

If you want to use integrated HD3000 gfx, then http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115093
