i have ordered a few parts so far, Mobo, case, psu and RAM sticks but i have a question that i cant seem to get a deffinate answer on, i have purchased G.skill Ripjaw (2x2gb) RAM sticks, and on the box and various sites it says works with Intel core i5 and core i7 CPUs, so does this mean are they the only CPUs that will work or can i use a core i3? thankyou in advance

from the sound of that price, i'd say you're looking at the i3 540.

skip the 540 and save your money, just get the i3 530. the only difference between the two is that the 540 is clocked 130mhz faster, but that's an insignificant increase in clock speed compared to what they can really do. they've been shown to hit a stable 4ghz+ on just the stock cooler.

Yeah it was the 540 I had looked at but for the minimal increase the 530 sounds fine then, I save about 30$ by getting a 530. Could you recommend a good graphics card for around 160.00$ ish. Thanx
