Default Re: Building A New PC - Advice Needed

Ok so ive decided a couple more things:

mobo:

Asus P5B Intel P965 LGA775 ATX 1066FSB Pentium D Core 2 Duo 65nm Dual-Core DDR2 800 PCI EX16 GBLAN SATAII RAID :: Elive - New Zealand's Online Computer Store

CPU:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core Windsor 2.0GHz Socket AM2 Processor Retail Box :: Elive - New Zealand's Online Computer Store

OR:

Intel Pentium D 925 3.0GHz Presler 800MHz FSB 2 x 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Dual Core Processor Retail :: Elive - New Zealand's Online Computer Store

What one is better?, can you fit intel cpus on amd boards with the right socets?

Ram:

G.SKILL 1GB DDR2-800 (PC-6400) CL5-5-5-15 MEMORY RETAIL F2-6400PHU1-1GBNR :: Elive - New Zealand's Online Computer Store

Would that all fit together and improve the pc?

intel and amd don't use the same sockets so they are not compatible.

and stop choosing pentium D's you want Core2duo's the e4300, e6320, e6420, e6600

I just relised I can afford the e4300:

Intel Core 2 DUO E4300 1.80GHz Allendale 800MHz FSB 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Dual Core Processor Retail :: Elive - New Zealand's Online Computer Store

Would that be fast?

E4300 is a very good choice, it performs on par with AMD 4200+ at stock, but it can be overclocked to unbelievable speeds

Antz if you choose an Allendale then I highly suggest a good board that likes high FSB as the Allendales can be quite picky.

Here is the one you want man...and it's cheaper

Core2duo has two processors, bigger cache, and a faster front side bus. Both r pretty good overclockers, tho i'd say the core2duo is better. Overclocking is pretty easy, i think there'z a sticky on this site somewhere.
