was that 300$ for the build or processor? Q6600 is under 300. Itll beat the pants off a 3.0 P4.

yeeh.. is that your CPU budget or Total budget? What is your total budget?

What do you need this pc for..

a. Just web browsing, some application
b. Light gaming (dont care about jaggies, lower rez, medium quality)
c. Video encoding, student stuff
d. Hardcore gaming

cos at $300 total budget your gonna be A.

Id have to agree with Akubane.. Id say go for the Quadcore Q6600 G0. youll be blown away mate

if your budget is $300 then go for a quad core dude. Btw akubane its cheaper on newegg, but i noticed you live in Canada and i forgot if they ship to there or not...lol.

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

neither ship to canada. im stuck payin over 300 for mine.
ClubIT Guarentees G0 stepping. The others dont. I got B3 from ncix 2 weeks ago >.> so lame. If you're smart and you get one get it from ClubIT unless Newegg just started to guarentee it. you might pay an extra 10$ or something but 10$ is worth the G0 stepping imo.

oh clubit was 2.50$ cheaper too lmao not liek that makes any difference.

Hmm, quad-core sounds cool for about $300 u say? nice, i'm willing to spend about $700 - $800 for everything including the graphics card and 2 GB RAM. Oh and what mobo supports quad-core?

hmm... its gonna hard be squeezing a q6600 with 800$

e6750
abit ip35-e
Crucial Ballistix 2gb Kit
8800gt
Case of your Choice
HD of your choice..
Corsair 520hx
Arctic Freezer Pro7

if you get more budget space... like just even $130 more.. you can get a q6600 and a TRUE120 w/ a Fan just replace the AF7 and the e6750 i listed up there..
