*moved to keep under one thread*

Mach Speed Viper MK8-939A Via Socket 939 ATX Motherboard and an AMD Athlon 64 3700+ 2.20GHz OEM Processor


Intel DG965RYCK Intel Socket 775 ATX Motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86GHz OEM Processor

I don't know the impact of GHz on 2 core CPUs...

I have to have a build payload by later this afternoon, so unfortunately I can't look into this too much right now.

I am upgrading vid card from my AGP Raedon 9700 (I didn't notice the PCI Express wasn't a AGP slot... *feels stupid*) to a ATI Radeon X1600 Pro...
So I apologize to anyone for getting them confused.

And your missing a Power supply. Yes I am aware that the case comes with one. But that doesn't Count. :P

Go for the Core 2 Duo, it's dual core and will destroy the Athlon in anything. The graphics card will be a nice upgrade and definetly look into getting a new power supply. The one that comes with the case is a piece of garbage and if it dies you risk frying other parts of your computer. I second Ste's reccomendation.
