It could do until I am able to purchase a monitor, my tv resolution is on the low end. Looks like my budget increased again.

Is there much difference from the AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ to the AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+?

Depending on what my final budget is I may be thinking of different parts and then checking that is will all go together correctly.

the 3600 brisbane is popular here because it overclocks well, I hear. But at stock I assume the 3800 is faster, but not by much.

It is only three dollars more on Newegg then the 3600.

Thanks for all the help.

the brisbane will overclock much better, and run quite a bit cooler than the 3800 windsor.
i also have an x2 4200 windsor and i like my 3600 brisbane much better.

So, over all 3600 would be better for what I will be using.

Thanks
