post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so i made a thread about this a while ago...
i'm upgrading to intel from amd, but i've this time got a larger budget
about £200

so anyone wanna recommend me a CPU, motherboard and cpu cooler please?
i have Crucial Ballistix DDR2-6400 if thats enough for the memory.
(2x1gb)

I need a system that is overclockable to 4ghz
and maybe something futureproof as well
any recommendations?

Just about any P35 or X38 will do. Do you want to spend 200 on everything? Or just on the motherboard?

P35-DS3L can't do CF. You need P35-DS4 if you want to stick with Gigabyte.

i just made my final choice.

Mobo: P5K Pro
CPU Cooler: TT120
CPU: C2D E8400

I wont be buying yet.... not until i can get the money.
About june/july time?
if i change my mind or if anything new from Intel comes out i'll most likely go back to this thread and ask for any opinions on changes.

X38's CrossFire much better than the P35s. The X38's are more expensive though.
