The 2500+ is a good solid CPU, I personally would see if I could afford something like a 2800+, but some might argue the the 2500+ is a good OCer

Yeah, the 2500 is good for the money, just make sure you overclock it to get the 2.8C speeds. That graphics card has GOT to go! The 9200 is junk! because you are saving bout $90 on the processor, I would upgrade the graphics to a 9600 pro or 9600 XT. You will thank me later if you ever play games on it.

OK, then well the 2500, 2600, 2700, etc. are all good chips for the money, not that great for gaming, but they'll do the job pretty well
