Default 650$ AUD to spend :D

Ok.. already brought an 8800GT 512mb for 250. Im left with 400$ Australian.


Looking for Motherboard/Cpu/Ram.

I looked at intel, but it seems so expensive, if i got intel id want Q6600 or the highest end dual core. With AMD ID like the Athlon 6000+ X2

Motherboard im looking for, Must have SLI. AM2. 4x Memory slots.

Ram im not sure about, but whatever i can get with left over money.

If people know what i should get between AMD Or Intel please tell me, intel seemed so hard to find for the motherboard that i want with the features.

from a quick glance, AMD seemed much cheaper.

8800GT 512mb (G92)
AMD Athlon X2 6000+
2-4GB Generic Ram

would run games fast? half life 2 engine in 100+ fps @ 1280x960 in high detail?

I still think you should go with Intel. A Core 2 Duo E7200 is faster than any dual or tri core AMD cpu.
