Scrap the whole thing. Then, in two weeks, come back and we'll build you a 10x better system for the same price.

What? He says he MAY have to buy it before the price drops, and Conroe comes out before the price drops. What do you want me to read?

Hey. Just sayin'. He plans on waiting, so he'll ask us again if he gets a chance. I doubt he's going with Conroe anyway by the looks of it.

hey everyone chances are that I wont be able to wait till the price drop, but new things have occured, and I dont think I should get the video card I listed, the only reason I was going to get it was because I knew someone who could buy it off of me, well that guys kid poured water inside his comps case when the guy was putting in a new hard drive grr, So I think I should just get a ok video card and save some money then but the new video cards when they come out. any suggestions? on what video card?

thanks

I agree with gerry Intel pused the realease date for conroe to July 14th, the e6600 is right in your budget, and if you can afford that with the ddr2 memory theres still the lower models that can still perform better than the x2 3800+, and if you must go with amd price drops should beround july 23rd.

For the video card the 7600gt will do you wonders.

I wouldn't get that motherboard. Get an MSI K8N Neo4-F.
