Well first what could you give a little more information about what you want this computer to be able to do or what your planning on using it for. Do you wanna be able to overclock, play games like BF2, HL2, Doom3, or are you just looking to get a decent machine to do regular stuff. Since you are on a budget it'll give people an idea of where to add money to get the best for what you wanna do an what areas they don't have to be as critical in.

Yes it is, double the amount of pipelines. I would go with 3200+ Venice, TWINMOS is good or go OCZ VX.

Thats a pretty good system dhw, pretty much like the one I just put together except for the mobo. And from newegg it definitely comes in under 1000 so you should have atleast like 150 extra bucks to upgrade components if you want
