I'm really just looking for the best bang for my buck MOBO-CPU combo.
Since the AMD combo I've got now was $150 I guess I wana say 200 MAX for mobo and CPU...

Yes, The Intel E2180 is $70 and can beat a AMD 5000+ Black Edition that costs $10 more. The E2180 is also an incredible overclocker.

Newegg.com - Intel Pentium E2180 Allendale 2.0GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors

ok would The e2200 and 650i mobo be a good combo ??

I'm assuming the 2200 overclocks better than the 2180 (its $10 more)

but is that a decent mobo to overclock with ?

Newegg.com - Intel Pentium E2200 Allendale 2.2GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors

Newegg.com - ECS NF650iSLIT-A (V1.0) LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

total price would be 619 after MIR... for a pretty good system IMO...

whata u guys think ?

If you don't need sli a p35 or p43/45 motherboard are great overclockers. That is a good deal on a 680i A1 as well.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
or
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP43-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Also the E2200 is not worth the price increase vs the E2180.

ok awesome I'll go with the e2180 then.

BTW...

just how exactly does one board overclock "better" than another one ? easier bios to run and program ?

better fsb's, more stable voltage, better bios stability.. communications are just generally better

stability is what makes 1 board better than another.. the ability to stay stable using higher fsb's, ram timings, and voltages
