stick it in a rig and use it for a water cooler... the toaster rig will be the rig of the future!

Anyway, thanks for the advice guys.

yep, I think there are a couple of low-end boards that have ddr1 and Core 2 Duo Support (I think it was an ASRock)

yea the asrock i've been looking at supports ddr 400 and ddr2 667. i already have a gig of ddr 400 that was in the previous board but the prices of the ddr2 667 seem low enough might as well upgrade to the ddr2 with the e6550 i think.

agreed.. the e2180 isn't worth it, because you get a higher multiplier for $10 more dollars....
