Default Conroe setup

Okay, as of now i have 785.59 to spend on a conroe setup (cpu,mobo,ram) Will that be enough money to buy a pretty good conroe setup? sorry for the dumb question i just dont know much about the prices of the conroes.

Depends on which Conroe processor you want.

Anandtech reviewed Conroe motherboards today. There are also some prices listed. If someone wants to check those out to make a system, go ahead. I'm feeling miserable right now, so I can't do it, sorry.

The thing that sucks right now is your looking at the $250 range for any decent mobo. That price will go down, but it could be a while.

For 2gb of RAM, your looking at about $200.

So for mobo and RAM your at about $450, that leaves a little over $300 left for the CPU.

Realistically, the E6600 will probably end up running you around $350. You could drop to an E6400 and have room to spare.
