Thanks I tried both of those:

Not sure I really understand what either of those mean but some of the bars go higher toward 500mb/s so I'm guessing that's a good thing?
Please do not PM or Email me directly about your CD Key issues, follow the guidance in this thread instead.

It's usually down to what features you require, like CPU power phase to madly OC your CPU , ( 2 or 4 way GFX setup ) or how many USb 2.0 - 3.0 you will need, reset CMOS and power on\off button on MB, how many SATA 6 and SATA 3, e-SATA, firewire, thunderbolt or even integrated Wi-Fi etc etc..
It goes even bit beyond all this but it difference may come down to what audio codecs are implemented, what ethernet driver it uses etc etc...too many factors I can cover here BUT once you understand the basics and what to look for its way easier to comprehend it all.
Now you might find a MB that has all this features on it and will cost you 300$ up, or you can find one that has only Crossfire or\and SLI slots, some USB 2 and 3 ports but deosnt have integrated wi-fi, has weaker CPU power phase, cheaper codecs and fewer **insert feature here** ports, driving the price of used components and \or licenses down.
There's just too much to cover but if you have any or more specific questions I'll (try to ) and gladly answer them here
@Placebo, the atto benchmarks look alright to me....( is the SSD on AHCI by the way as its recommended?)

Yes it is.

best-rated controller for SSD's is LAMD, presently acquired by SK Hynx with developer/designer.
and indilux/Marvel v4 - second in charts.
about "iNtel vs AMD storage controllers" topic. they comparable, AMD even better[but Nvidia even better than AMD], a bit, but drivers... quite opposite.
basically you don't need driver for both during usage in modern operating systems and motherboard, both because AHCI support[de-facto standard of storage interface/driver] and legacy/IDE [optional]HDD/SSD emulation by motherboard firmware.
generally AHCI also provide less CPU overhead.

In answer to your original question, you could post here: Congratulations Bohemia Interactive

However, I'm looking for help on building one from scratch(my friends are helping with that). I want to know if their is any way to turn my Dell desktop into a low-end gaming computer.
If anyone can help, I will appreciate it greatly.
EDIT: Is there at least some possibility of putting in a new processor?
