Well no matter what you choose, good luck. If you plan to stick with a 939 board, I would go with chozart's suggestion. He deffinately knows what he's talking about.

You said you don't mind spending more on ram etc. later. So here's what I suggest. That mobo can use DDR 400 has a pci express slot and runs a core2 duo. So there your have a Sweet ass conroe system with which you can use your existing ram, until you get more money for some ddr2 800 and then eventually a new mobo to overclock that suckah. A non-overclocked core 2 duo will Keep you going until then. Trust me!

In fact, I don't know why I didn't think of that for myself... I just might do the same damn thing.
Im considering your idea..

Hmm..but if i wanted a better processor I would have to upgrade mobo/processor again..anyway

Seems like the only thing Id be getting out of it is DDR2 , which otherwise i would have to upgrade to just get that.. I dont know....

Better processor than the E6300? There aren't that many Basically only the other Core 2 Duo's and the Core 2 Quad.

But if you go Core 2 Duo, I'd get something like this (save on the video):
Total: $543.97

Good overclockable rig. Decent video card, and great all around performance. That E6300 will trounce anything AMD has to offer when you overclock it (past 3.0GHz should be easy, at which speed it even leaves an FX-62 in the dust)

Now that is a great idea.

I approve.

It's the cheapest Core 2 Duo motherboard I'd recommend Not expensive for a decent Core 2 Duo mobo. Sorry

I guess it's a matter of supply and demand. And personally, the mobo (together with the PSU) are the core parts of a PC and should NEVER be skimped upon.

Could you give us a little more info on your current PC, ram and stuff you're carrying over? I prefer the Opty 165 like Pow3rtrip said, but I'd wait on your GFX card. If you want Vista you'll need a DX10 card.

That mobo is a more stable motherboard and great for overclocking. You'll easily get to 3.0ghz with it and Chozart's build will leave you with much less to upgrade. You end up taking a bit of cash away from the Videocard but that videocard is still good enough to play any game out there with a decent fps and should last until you have more money for a DX10 card.

Vista does not REQUIRE a DX10 card. That's complete BS. Vista will be able to run on a DX9 card. There's no way they would be stupid enough to make everyone buy dx10 cards just to run an OS. That would be like saying you need a DX9 card to run XP.

Agreed. Vista does NOT need a DX10 card. DX9 is required to run all parts of Vista. However, you'll need Vista to run a DX10 card (using DX10...) Current DX10 cards in XP rigs do NOT run DX10, but DX9 instead.
