Default a piece of advice

Hey, i need help building a gaming pc that can play Bf2, CS.S. I am planning to give 580-620$ for it. I might be overclocking a little. I need a CPU, mobo, RAM (ddr2), Graphic Card.

And, are there any good mobos for the E6300 lower for lower than 150$? Because i would be going with E6300 if that was the case.

if you went conroe, you could get that mobo, the e6300, decent 2gbs of dual channel ram, but you'd have only like $70-$100 for the video card.

I wouldn't buy the first motherboard that you mentioned. The second one is better i believe because you have more options for upgradeability in the future...such as SLI for example.
