If you must have an AMD in the 5000 range, I'd get the X2 5200+ It has 2X1MB L2 Cache opposed to the 5000+ with only 2X512KB L2. (Both at 2.6GHz).

For the motherboard, I would highly recommend the Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe nforce 570. It is socket AM2.

Good combination of Budget/Performance right there IMO.

Just upgrade your current socket 939 sys you'll save a few extra bucks until you want to switch over.


939:


Processor (Opteron 165) $99.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103588
-Overclocks to 3GHz assuming you have the proper stepping. I'm not sure about the new but anything within DPWM 0610-061x was pretty good. Keep in mind that your memory must overclock over ddr500 in order to reach 3GHz


Mobo (ASUS A8N32-SLI)$139.99:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131568

I went ahead and rushed for a dfi lanparty ut sli-dr expert when I bought my processor but you'll run into a lot of problems if it doesn't like your memory. Trust me it hates mine. You'll still be able to get 3GHz + with this board assuming you can do over ddr500

haha fail.....

anyway, to make things cheaper you would probably be better off with a 3600+ Brisbane as they overclock like crazy, run cool, and are cheap to buy

this mobo is good, and that matched with the 3600+ it would be brilliant

what ram are you getting? because if its only 1GB then it would be worth dropping down to a GTS so you can get better ram

also, just a note, the 8800GTX is 768mb not 710mb

I'd go with an Opteron 1210 as it has the 2mb cashe and will overclock to 3Ghz from 1.8Ghz. Then pair that with a DFI LANPARTY UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G and 2Gb GSkill HZ or Geil Black Dragons.

Quick correction, the 1210 is 1.8 stock - but you can get to 3.0 easily I hear (not me yet... right around 2.6 so far, but I have room)

<biostar fanboy>
No need to spend the big bucks on the DFI, go for Biostar!!!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138071
great OC'er and $100 less than DFI

hmm i don't wanna be doing MAD over clocking, so im going to go with the 5200+ and since the Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe has been mentioned more then once as an option im going to go with it.

as for ram, id like to go ddr3 but thats too expensive.. im prolly going to go with the OCZ (OCZ2FX800C32GK) DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHz CL 3 FlexXLC Edition 2GB (2x1024MB) Dual Channel Kit 3-4-4-15 not quite sure what those numbers stand for tho. http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...46&cid=RAM.835

or maybe i should go up a notch and go with the 1066 MHz and get the http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...45&cid=RAM.812


ive heard of a socket f mobo anyone know what thats about?
