Default 600-750

I will have that much to build a whole new system maybe and I was thinking of an AM2 system but I would need everything for the actuall computer including case and psu no monitor though. I was thinking like a 3800+ Windsor matched with a some ocz ram but what do you guys think I can build around my price range... video card is not needed but it would be nice to have one in there.

That's what I kinda wonder too. I am on skt939, and if I were to upgrade (on a budget) I'd be looking at keeping my motherboard and going with an X2 for skt 939.

Is your current PC prebuilt or did you build it? If you built it then just sell off the parts you are going to replace. If it was manufactured then your plan is probably best.
