Will an ATX motherboard fit into a HP Pavillion a6019h case that has a micro ATX motherboard in it. Might be a silly question but never know till you ask.

Well go Intel then! I can guarantee that the motherboard I linked you to will overclock well and that you will be able to achieve faster speeds than any AMD chip. Also, with that motherboard, you can always upgrade to a quad core or 45 nm chip. While with AM2, you are pretty much stuck with AM2 chips (Phenom is pretty much only supported on AM2+ boards only, the backwards compatability is non-existant).

If the case is an ATX format it will have 7 card slot openings.

On the RAM question, the D9s are on the shelf, from what I've been seeing they aren't being made anymore. Even the latest Ballistix are single sided and not D9s.
You might find some D9 based RAM used in the For Sale section.

The first article is almost a year old and the second one is more than 6 months old. They are also from the same source. They should not even be in information to consider when buying a new comp. There is absolutely not point in going AMD when you can get a mobo/proc that will get you somewhere around 3 Ghz if not over 3 Ghz for under $150. MADNESS! That you post those links. This is OCN, not some retirement home for old, outdated and slow AMD chips. Intel is the king right now, no reason not to get.

Basically... Buy AMD and your wasting your money, it is old technology with no path of upgrade for the future. Buy Intel and you making a smart purchase because it is somewhat future proof and you have a path of upgrade.

I hate to say it. But at the moment the upgrade path for AMD looks dim. As soon as AM3 comes out at the end of the year it will be bye-bye AM2 (of course, there will still be limited support for AM2 on AM3 boards and vice-versa). Skt 775 will last at least as far as the 45nm line so its a better bet imo. Let alone that with AM2 you're stuck with ddr2 memory, as the memory controller is on the processor, with intel, its all down to the mobo for memory support.

Go buy an e2180 and an GA-P35_DS3L or Abit IP-35-e - you can get an e2180 for 59.99 here - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...d9G7HDLBYFdWbA You should be able to pull 3-3.4ghz with a good cooler.
As for cooling OEM chips have no cooler, so grab a Tuniq tower ($40) or freezer 7 pro ($25)

(please don't start flaming either AMD or Intel, because at the end of the day we just want to see the OP make the best use of his money)
