Pretty good. Go with a S3 or a P5B though. The 965 chipset is superior.

If you want an overclocking challenge the X2 in my sig is running 260 x 10 an surprisingly, beats my E6300 at stock! All for $100 cheaper. That rig performs way better in games and was overall $200 cheaper.

Amd still has some kick.

For ram id always recommend getting some DDR 800mhz with your Core 2 Duo, but thats just me. Whats your budget like?

I use Geil DDR2 Ultra 800mhz 4-4-4-8, its great ram and doesnt break the bank at the same time. Ive also heard its pretty good for overclocking. Coudnt find it on Newegg but heres a link from my favourite PC site: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...R2_Memory.html (third one down).

I think your making a good choice with the Core 2 Duo, I bought an AM2 due to the cheapish prices, but am kind of regretting it since K8L isnt looking very spectacular atm.

Im hoping that may help you.

The DH is alright but uses the 975X chipset and for the budget core2's the multiplier is low so you need to be able to pump the FSB way high. The 965P can punp way over 400 while the 975X struggles to. The 975X is for E6600 and greater I reckon.

Finally......now I need black PSU and HDDs....and DVD-RW drives and black casing and Im done for a FULL black interior and exterior casing woot ( I dont have the $$ for black CRT / keyboard / mouse although my X-530s are black )
