well here's the setup

Apevia X-Discovery- BK Case
Asus P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVidia nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Mobo
Asus En8500 GT
Rosewill Re502-BLK ATX 12v 500w
Intel Allendale 2180

WD 500GB 7200rpm sata drive

This system will be slightly overclocked btw not extreme.

620 Subtotal

may even consider a quad core

i would deffinatly consider the quad. you'll be happier in the long run.

i would also look into a ddr3 mobo, cuz you can pick up a decent 2gig set for like $125 now which isnt bad. and the mobo wouldnt be much more than the one you have listed above.

i always try to get the better gear if its out to future proof. or buy the parts a few weeks apart when you have the money. you'll be happy that you did cuz in 2yrs when you wan tto upgrade you'll have to spend half as much.

I'd go for some other than the 8500GT for sure but then again it is $60 and I guess there isn't much else in that price range. Gigabyte P35-DS3L would definitely be a much better choice of motherboard from an overclocking perspective and since you are going for a low end graphics card I'm assuming you don't was to SLI. Otherwise looking good

If he is going for a fairly low-end system, you can't really suggest a quad core. Also, DDR3 is horribly overrated and DDR2 is way cheaper and better for overclocking. Future proofing is fine, but when it is for office use, there really isn't a point.

this system wont be a gamer so to speak. This guy just wants it fast as can be. He does mostly browsing and business work on it.

so go for the gigabyte instead of the Asus?

Since i've saving money on the mobo what about a better cpu?
