don't say AMD's suck (this isn't fanboyism) i guess u have had a bad experience with them or something??

anyways.... a celeron might be worth looking into, since the new Celerons (Celly D was last gen) have the Core 2 Duo based architecture (Core to be specific) look up Conroe-L, nice CPU's and overclock like champs just like their big brothers

Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

current list on Conroe-L's on Newegg single-core.... tho not really the best for multitasking since a x2 3600+ is about the same price

Oh well - Already ordered

Just went with the original build + 320gb HD, XP, no speakers

Power cord is this:
I-Sheng
SP-305
E55943

Looks like https://www.wiredco.com/catalog/images/PCPWR1.bmp

I think thats a pretty standard cord?

Yes...it will just be a little easier to reach the 3GHz mark, because of it's higher stock speed.
