And You obviously have no clue as to what you just said.
Lol, I obviously did not even read that POST.

Pentium Dual Core!?!?! I'd like one.


Back on topic, this is why I always carry a External Enclosure for these types of situation.

$50 - E2180 OEM
$70 - Abit P35 (after $30 MIR)
$85 - Corsair 550VX (after $15 MIR)

Though saddened by the loss of just over $200, I must say I'm excited to leave the shackles of a first edition AMD Windsor core and play with my first Intel rig. New overclocking knowledge awaits

Now all I need is a reason to throw in a 9600GT or 8800GT... lol.

Yah, that is our hobby and you know it.
Can't wait to see it.

Good budget build, to me.
