Well the Conroes or Core 2 Duos are the best on the market right now? But first, what is your budget?

ya i was looking at those. the people at the computer store said they were the best but i wanted to see what other people said. i really dont havea budget but i also dont want to spend way to much. i was thinking the E6300 with the intel 965 mother board.

low end gaming machine 800
mid range plays mosts games med-high 1200
high end 1500

depending on what you have allready and what you need
have you checked out newegg yet?

start with your processor

than a motherboard that is combatible

than video card

1 gb ram (i prefer cosair value)

and go from there

also DO NOT go cheap on the power supply

it all depends on your budget...

e6300 is a great processor, but if you pay more, you can get the higher performing e6600. so make a budget.

these parts are considered good bang-for-the-buck high performance components:

cpu: e6600
video card: 7900GTO
ram: 2 X 1GB PC6400 DDR2800 dual channel kit with 4-4-4-12 timings or if you can't afford that then 5-5-5-15 timings.
PSU: antec truepower II 550watt

etc..
