If you can learn to OC an AMD, Intels are cake Both are very fun to tweak, but Intel's are generally easier. GL

The Dual Core Pentium Allendale's compare very nicely with their more expensive counterparts the Core 2 Duo's. Clock for clock they are within few points, seconds or FPS when compared to higher end chips. Here is an example of an E2160 (stock 1.8GHz) v. E6300 (stock 1.86GHz).

Since you are on a limited budget I would get an Allendale E2140-E2200, like the E2160 is $70 shipped from NewEgg and the E6300 is $160, and save your money for that 8800GT you have your eye on.

you will like the DS3L it is a good budget board and a rock solid one at that .

all i can say is be careful of how hot you let the nb get, there is no fan or temp sensor on it so the "touch test" is needed on occasion , to play it safe i strapped a fan on mine .

good luck!
