Seems like an even better deal. I'm not sure what the low FSB of 800 on the processor I linked to initially in the original post actually means, but i'm trying to score the best deal here. What would having a low FSB on the 2.4gb dual core processor mean? I know that it has something to do with how fast the cpu communicates with the ram, but does it really have tha great of an impact?

this is a better set up.
as far as the FSB, yes it has an impact. you can always overclock .

I ran into a little bit more money and already ordered the 2.53 dual core processor with 2 gigs of ram. Could I replace the card with a 9800 GTX and power it with my measily 480 watt psu? The card is so cheap .

Not if the PSU is a crappy brand... There are some great 450w PSU's that can do it (high quality ones) and there are some crappy 800w ones that can't do it

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.
