Final Either/Or Before C2D Build- Please Advise

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Intel e4400/6320/6420 - I'll overclock eventually, which will give me more?
ATI X1900XTX - Already bought.
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 Rev 3.3 - Sturdy and long lasting. I want to plug/play.
G.Skill Black HZ wonder-oc ram - Everyone says it rocks.

I'd like a new cheap case with plenty of room and a window, under $50.
I'm buying a Zalman NB heatsink to fix that on the MB.

Thanks much. I've been researching and reading forums for about 2 months now. It's time.

Sounds good to me

If you can afford it, get the E6420. You'll have all the positives: 266MHz FSB, x8 multi, 4MB cache. The E6320 has only x7 multi, while the E4300 has an FSB of 200MHz and only 2MB cache.

IMO I would go with a e6x00 as I have seen a lot of people saying that they are having trouble OCing with the newer e6x20's. I know that I am going against the advice of the Chozart, and that it depends on your stepping revision, but I dont see the added L2 as enough of a bonus to make it worth my time to take the gamble. Just my .02, and you should probably listen to chozart n e way.
