Welcome to Tech Forums

For $900, you can do a C2D build. It's late now so I have to go, but others can explain what that is.

You can slip away w/ a q6600 if you can extend budget or knock some other things out. Will you be overclocking?

He's my friend, he told me what he wanted, and I made another thread, but I see he already came to the source, and yes, his budget includes buying a 20+" monitor
