Thread Starter 
Well I've decide to upgrade my pc a little after christmas and Id like your guys opinions on what I should get.

Ill need:
-A New CPU (Dual Core)
-A New Motherboard (AM2 or 775)
-Some New RAM
-A CPU Heatsink and Fan
-A Cheap New Case if Mobo isnt mATX

Id like to only spend $300-$350
Thanks for the help in advance

I would say it is going to be tough to find all that for $300 but I know that if I say that, Chozart will come along and prove me wrong, so I won't.

But I will ask if it is an option to perhaps wait a bit longer and stockpile some more money.

I'm doing the same thing ecxept I'm not getting RAM. It is just in that price range for me.

CPU - 805/820 I would go for the 820. $95
Mobo - ASUS P5L $76
RAM - Better Timings/Higher Speed I would got with the higher speed $110
Cooler - Tuniq Tower $55

A rough calculation shows $336 before tax and shipping.

Sounds hard . You could do it within £350 (I'm saving up right now. I'm after a graphics card first though)
