Here is what I am looking at right now:

Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS - Zipzoomfly - $125
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 - Newegg - $311.00
Asus P5B-E - Zipzoomfly - $157.00
eVGA 256-P2-N554-AX e-Geforce 7600 GT KO 256MB - Zipzoomfly - $120.00
NEC 7170A-0B OEM - Newegg.com - $35.00
OCZ OCZ520ADJSLI PowerStream 520W - Zipzoomfly - $95.00
orsair (2x1GB) XMS 2 Dominator TWIN2X2048-6400C4D 4-4-4-12 - Zipzoomfly - $273.00
Scythe SCINF-1000 Infinity - Newegg - $57.99
Artic Silver 5 - Newegg - $5.99
Total $1179.95

I could also go with the Conroe E6400 for $1087.45.

Also, I hope to OC either chip to 3.6 GHz.

Please tell me if you think there are any problems with my setup.

I am also looking for a good fan to replace the Scythe one with. I am very open to suggestions.

Please let me know if there is anything you would swap out or anything I am missing (Besides a monitor and a hard drive, both of which I already have.

I am buying within a couple weeks, so hopefully some prices will go down between now and the time I will buy. (Waiting till the day after Thanksgiving)

As far as the graphics card goes, I really only play a few EA games and GTA San Andreas so I really shouldn't need the best card out there.

I am kinda sketchy as far as RAM and Motherboard go. I would really appreciate suggestions reguarding those two parts, and any part for that matter.


I AM REALLY WANT SUGGESTIONS. IF YOU HAVE A COMMENT OR SUGGESTION, PLEASE MAKE ONE.

A E6600 will easily hit 3.6 GHz. You will have a harder time getting a E6400 to 3.6 GHz.

Agree, it does depend on the chip. My first 6400 could only get around 3.3ghz. Sold it to a friend, and my new one can do 3.6ghz on a Big Typhoon. Likewise, my first 6600 had trouble around 3.2-3.3ghz. Exchanged it, and the 6600 I have now, can also reach 3.6ghz on a Typhoon, like my 6400.


Also keep in mind that for many things, the extra cache on 6600 makes it perform better than a 6400 at equal clock speed. Not to mention, a little more futureproof. I say go for the 6600 . Myself I won't be buying another allendale. It'll be another conroe or quad for my next cpu.

How do you exchange the chip after you have already used it?

I got it at Fry's. They have 30 days to return most stuff, 15 days for cpu's ram and such. I simply returned it, said I wanted one from a different batch.

Might want to check out the P5B Deluxe. Prices have dropped to < US$200.00

3.6 with aftermarket Tower Cooler NP... check my sig (E6400 24/7 clock)

Exactly what I was going to suggest. The P5B Deluxe is only about $30 more than the E now. Definatly recomended......and I would say you should have no reservations about the Infinity, that is a very good cooler. Unless you can get your hands on a Tuniq Tower, I would stick with the Infinity.
