Wait, he isn't overclocking... Why has nobody suggested an AMD build?

If it were me I would go with a 6400+ BE for wayyyy less then that Intel. You wont notice any difference in performance from a e8400 in CS:S or most things for that matter.

If going amd, the 5000+ Be is the best choice.

Hey guys, yeah I am going with the 3.0ghz Intel e8400

I ordered that case yesterday, so it's all in process.

I may want to over-clock, I never knew it was so simple....

ABIT IP35-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor

These two are my next purchase, probably next week. I have heard good things of these two products. That processor should satisfy my needs, and then some.

It's coming together, fellas.
