Since majority of the people i have come across say Intel is better than AMD please someone make me a new build, make me a entire computer from processor to headset, i want at least a 22" screen, 8800 or 3800 ATI Graphics Card, 4gb RAM, and 250gb HDD, also with the Vista 64-Bit OS, all of this must be under $2200 and that includes a $250 for shipping so try cap off around $1900 on comp parts. If you cant fit that budget just post a good intel gaming computer.

Just keep everything the way you have it except get the following:

Motherboard: Abit IP35
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600

Edit: Removed CPU Cooler, didn't see the one you picked. It's compatible with LGA775.
