Default Computer Upgrade - 2 Possibilities

Hi all,

I'm looking to upgrade my current PC, and figured I pretty much need every component except a case, HDD, and maybe a graphics card. I've attatched a .txt of the two possible builds, but I'm not exactly a hardware genius so I'm not 100% positive both of them will work.

I think I'm going to go for the second spec I listed, and it looks like everything should work, but I'd still like a second opinion.

If any of you could take a look at the solutions, and tell me if any of them will work, and if not, what's wrong, I would be really grateful

Another thing, would I have overheating issues with these setups? I have done in the past, and currently only have 2 case fans that I've added to try and lower temperatures. Any overheating solutions would be great too.

Thanks in advance!

buy yourself a decent motherboard, MSI, GigaByte, Asus, they make stable solutions. get Casing = Antec Sonata II (already comes with 480W PSU, and fans + filters, its ultra quiet and nicely designed casing for optimum air flow.
Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache
