investigate the poss. of the intel core 2 duo cpus these are better than the amd dual core. this would mean a different motherboard.

i was gonna go for the amd 3800+x2 but then i found out about core duo and my e6300+ kicks ***

you will want to get like the e6600 cpu intseat of my e6300 because you can afford...
