CPU

INTEL CORE 2 DUO E4500 2.20 GHZ LGA775 - 800 FSB - 100.00 €

Mobos

GIGABYTE GA-P31-S3G - 60.89 €

GIGABYTE P31-DS3L - 61.95 €

Sadly the budget comes at 500 € so yes we can't go higher except if there is a big difference in power. The rest of the build are:

GPU

SAPPHIRE RADEON HD3850 256MB PCI-E RETAIL - 141.90 €

RAM

G.SKILL F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ DDR2 2GB (2X1GB) CL5 PC6400 800MHZ DUAL CHANNEL KIT - 58.00 €

PSU

THERMALTAKE W0143 PUREPOWER RX 550W CABLE MANAGEMENT - 75.96 €

HDD

WESTERN DIGITAL 320GB WD3200AAJS 7200RPM SATA2 - 66.90 €

So it all comes to 505 €. So yeah no more than 510 and yes its not a choice to go like 20 more and get something. But if P31 can't OC at all I an not sure what I will do.. The thing is this is a build for my friend and he said he will not give any more money for it. He wants the pc for gaming but is not willing to go to the latest. He has a AND 64 Athlon with 756 ram and an 6600gt so yeah this is na big step. So please if anyone can help with information about this. Also if there is a chance which of the 2 mobo's is a better choice? Oh and also does it worth to pay some more to get a 512MB 3850. The pc will never run games over 1280X1024..

Thanks in advance for the help ^_^
