Don't get an X2 right now unless its one of the lower ones becuase of budget. The First CPU you linked is a C2D and is a very sick processor indeed.

As for the speakers why not downgrade your CPU to an E6300 as they are in the end about just as fast for 40 bucks and you wouldn't notice the difference. This will give you extra cash and enough for these.

Thats a nice little system right there


EDIT: The power of an E6300 stock is like having two 4 GHZ P4's running. You'll notice a difference. Although I highly suggest you overclock them just a little bit even and you will get much more power.

also im just preparing for the worst with my speaker system because i think i blew 3 outta the 5 speakers. becuase when i play music i only get like a buzzing noise outta the front ones.
I believe this means they are blown.

chill out dude

no need to bump every 15 minutes

go to radio shack and pick up some thermaltake fans, thats what i did
but since your ordering off neweeg anyway why not just order of there??

thermaltake make good 120s from my experience with them
i have 4 of them, they are the ones with the red fan and the black outline

im too lazy right now to link them tho
