Default Parts...

Helloooo now that you are reading this I am about to upgradce my socket 939 classic with a nice 775 board. Problem is money! Sooo I have come up with teh following..

Motherboard:

ASUS P5N-D nForce 750i SLI Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer

now the 750i is 10 more than the 650i, is it work spending the extra money?

CPU:

Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5GHz Socket 775 800FSB 2MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor - Ebuyer

is this a good CPU for the money? Bit dissapointed it's branded as pentium and not core 2

As for RAM I'm getting a 2GB kit of Corsair xm2..

Responces as usual would be fantastic

Asus P5Q PRO P45 Socket 775 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer
Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 2GHz Socket 775 800MHz FSB L2 1MB Cache Retail Box Processor - Ebuyer
Better mobo and the cpu can easily oc to 2.9ghz. If you'd like to save money you could pick this mobo

You could get this ram
Corsair 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL5 Heat Spreader Lifetime Warranty - Ebuyer
and use the money saved to get the p5q pro I linked earlier. If you look the only differences of the ram you picked and the one I picked is the latencies being c4 @ 2.1v and mine being c5, but the one I picked runs @ 1.9v. I bet it will do cas4 if you pump the voltage to 2.1v just like the cas4 corsairs you picked. You get a better mobo out of the deal if you go w/ my choices and it will run the same but you will have 1mb less cache which is not a big deal. I've ran the e2180 overclocked to 3.0ghz and its a nice little chip

like I said the ones you picked are 4-4-4-12 2.1v the ones I picked are 5-5-5-18 1.9v. I'm sure it'll get cas 4 w/ 2.1v ymmv. Its up to you. If you go w/ my selection you get a better mobo out of it. You can run the ram as high as 2.2v
