wrong AMD's lower model Brisbane X2's are the best price/performance right now. A chip that only performs about 15% slower in real world apps for 1/3rd the price and can still be overclocked to 3.0ghz which is around where the E6320 goes to...The X2 3600 is the best price/performance chip right now combined with a Biostar 550 and an Arctic Freezer64. I own a C2D and if prices were this good back then i would have went AMD.
That build was deffinatly made to overclock...all the parts are highly recommended budget overclockers parts. How much do you want to spend on a graphics card? And no the 8600GT is not that great of a card for the price really at all...the 7900GS destroys it >.< regardless of DX10 just get a card such as a 7900GS or even X1900GT.
