Default Need opinions

Well I'm going to be building a budget rig within a next few months and I was wondering which processor I should choose. Remember this is a budget rig so I'll be getting one of those ECS combos but besides the mobos being bad, I want to know what you guys think between these choices. BTW they are all ECS mobo combos. The video card will probably cost about the same as these XD. OCing won't be a choice but anyways here ya go.

1. Intel C2D E6400 combo- $170
2. AMD 5600+ X2 combo - $150
3. AMD 6000+ X2 combo - $180

Well if you're not overclocking, the X2 6000+, would be the faster out of the three choices.

is it worth the $30 to go from the 5600 to the 6000?

For the same price of 6000+ you can get E6550
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

E6550 performs on par with 6000+ at stock, but it overclocks better and consume way much less power

Don't forget that this is a budget build and the price includes a Mobo already.
And the mobo doesn't matter to me cause I'm not Ocing anyways

The whole thing should be about $600 US

features don't matter to me since I won't be ocing or anything. The mobos are about the same with memory and slots.

I just wanted to know if they mobos were about the same, which combo should I choose as in processor/price ratio.
