Default new build.

hello. i just messed up my DFI Nf4-D so i need to get another motherboard, processor, and a set of ram. im planning to go am2 because i am on a budget. i only have access to anitec so can anyone give me some suggetions on motherboards, and processers, and rams? i will probably be going for the x2 3600 brisbane.

Anitec Computer Technology - Canada's Online Computer Store - www.anitec.ca



EDIT: what do you guys think?

Anitec.ca - Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe - nForce 570 SLI (Athlon64/X2/FX/Sempron) PCI-E Socket AM2
Anitec.ca - AMD Athlon64 X2 3600+ (1.9 GHz) Dual-Core Socket AM2 Processor
Anitec.ca - G.Skill Extreme F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Kit


btw, what is the difference between windsor and brisbane?

Go for this set of ram:
Anitec.ca - G.Skill Extreme F2-6400CL5D-1GBNQ 1GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Kit

And between these two, depending on the budget:
Anitec.ca - Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 - nForce4 SLI (Athlon64/X2/FX/Sempron) PCI-E Socket AM2
Anitec.ca - Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 - nForce 570 SLI (Athlon64/X2/FX/Sempron) PCI-E Socket AM2

Actually get the motherboard you posted. I just wasn't sure of your budget. Oh...sorry about that. I meant to link the 2gb kit of that G. Skill, and I linked the 1GB. Oh and the difference between Windsor and Brisbane, is that the Brisbane is on the 65nm process, and the Windsor is on the 90nm process.

The Windsor is not 65nm. You must be looking at where it says 65W.
