Default 650$ Build

Thats my budget in CANADIAN dollars. Im willing to go either AMD or intel. Considering my budget im thinkig AMD is likely the way to go. Im thinking perhaps a 64 3500 might be good. I want 1gig of 667 44412 ram ...probably gskill ddr2 and a sata 2 WD caviar 16mb buffer HD. Help me maximize the potential of this budget (includes case and psu). Below are some ideas for components

CPU

HD

your video card is not good.

Get at least 7600GS.

How is this?

With a cheap case it come to about 600$...Now for 10-20$ more I could go for a pentium D 805 2.66 GHz on the asrock conroe compatible Mobo. Would this be better? How does the AMD 64 3200 compare to the Pentium D 805?

I was thinking a Athlon 64 3000-3500. Now im thinking perhaps I should go the budget intel route. How does the Pentium D 805 stack up against the old athlon 64 3200?

I would get this cheap ASROCK mobo and be able to pop a conroe in at christmas. Bad idea going for asrock? I would go for the ds3 but its a 100$ difference.

your system looks fine, also what is a e6899? or did you just accidentally hit the 9 instead of the 0?
