Is that 3500+ a 90nm or 130nm core ? If it is the 130nm core(Newcastle) I would highly suggest you get the 90nm(Winchester) core. I think the 3500+ 90nm is like $355. If that is too much get the 3200+ 90nm cpu. There are numerous articles and reviews comparing the 3500+ 130nm to the 3200+ 90nm and the 3200+ 90nm is better in most test. Not to mention is runs cooler and is more OC friendly AND CHEAPER ! Matter of fact has it for $207 which is where I ordered mine and know it's cheaper than newegg's price. Other than that it all looks good to me !
