Get an E2200 and a Gigabyte P35 DS3L. That motherboard overclocks very well for low price.

The E2160 and a MSI P35 Neo2-FR will be a great combination, MSI's P35 boards have been solid overclockers and I adore my E2160

Mattass, compared to your sig rig I don't think you'll notice a "huge" difference. Obviously benchmark wise you'll notice it but you have a 5000+ at 3Ghz with a 3870! That's a nice rig in my opinion. What kind of tasks do you perform daily?

Good luck with your purchase

Gigabyte DS3L,

Or any DFI P35 board within your price range.

I would post Newegg links, but you're obviously not in America, so look for those boards wherever you shop.

e2160 is a great little proc., but it may be worth it to step up to an e2180.
