Ok, i just figured out that i have a budget of 620 dollars

1) processor

2) mobo

3) memory

4) case

5) psu if necessary

6) fans, lights, w/e

7) HEATSINK WITH FAN!

all within 620 dollars.

my choices are

1) athlon 64 3000+ ( probably OEM and buying a new heatsink w/fan) 120 OEM, or 146 with stock cooling, probably going with 120

2) DFI mobo lanparty nF3 Ultra-D
118 dollars

3) OZC performance series w/ copper heat spreaders(512x2)
110 dollars(may buy two if enough money)

4) case questionalble

5) psu questionalbe

6) fans and what not i need help with that too

7) Never bought a heatsink with a fan, dont know which ones are good or bad(OCing with 1.8 to about 2.6)!

Look at my sig. You don't need the DFI mobo to overclock well, and your missing stuff liek CD/DVD drives and hard drives. You should worry about every dollar especially if you are on a very tight budget.

So your suggesting that he buy the retail, which is 30 dollars more, and then replace the heatsink fan with an aftermarket, and then buy the arctic silver thermal compound? Your basically telling him to pay 30 dollars for an extra box.

You save 9 dollars buy buying the DFI at this site.

Use that 9 dollars and add some extra money to buy this power supply.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104154
Why? Well DFI-Street isn't going to help you unless you have a 480 watt power supply made by one of their reccomended companies. Also, its a 480 watt power supply. Not power stream, but ow wells.

The OEM is $3 more than the retail at newegg. If you're going to order all from newegg, then you might as well get the retail incase the heatsink craps out on you. Heck, you could use that stock heatsink on an older computer if it would do it any good.

Throw him the link that you put in the other thread for that $120 OEM 3000+ Venice; that's a good buy:.

I would suggest against that power supply. Very heavily suggest against that. Maybe this one. Free shipping and a 15 dollar rebate. Turns out to be 60 dollars shipped.
