The 750i FTW in your link is a good choice ;]

Just add a E8400 or Q6600 and you're ready to go... Almost.

eh? eh???
Its good, EVGA is a more expensive brand but I think they have better warranties. I'd wait for some more opinions before you get it, there may be better boards for less, but that is one of the more popular ones.

Exactly. There are so many options I don't want to shop around to much and stick with nicer stuff like that.

I'm almost positive now im on an mATX case. ****.
There go my hours I put into this case...oh well.

Ok pal lets start with this, sell the CPU+Mobo+RAM+GPU. Buy an HD4870 + E8400 + 2GB (4 if you can afford it) DDR800 + <someone help me here I'm not familiar with Intel boards>. Do that and you will have an unstoppable force of gaming might.

Do you have any idea how much money I would lose from that?
I'm going to stick with my unstoppable gpu(see avatar) for now and work my way up. I have good components still and will just need a new case for the new mobo.
what then? A CPU (E8400 sounds pretty good)!! then boom, i'll pwn.

From there it's water cooling, but i'm getting ahead of myself

Also mATX generally houses cheaper boards, so this new case is a must. This thing must run hot as well...

If you read the rest of the thread then you'll know he is not going to do that.

An E8400 is a great CPU and overclocks like mad, my max OC on one is to 3.82GHz and that is considered low for this processor. If you're interested in saving money, look for the E7200, it has less stock clocks (2.5ishGHz), and little less L2 cache, but it can be overclocked to 3.6 at the very least from what I'm seeing.

What would really help me find good components for you would be to list a general budget for a motherboard and CPU. If you don't have a budget, just give a reasonable number anyway and I'll see what I can find.

Note that his current motherboard has some restrictions:
The chipset more than likely does NOT support Quad Core CPUs. Also, you're limited to the 1066MHz chips, so you can forget the E6x50, E7xxx and E8xxx series if you want to use your current motherboard.

IF you want to use your current board, the best pick is an E6600 (try to find one used).

Here is one for sale:

$95... I'd pounce on it! A decent E6600 can overclock pretty well (3.4GHz shouldn't be too hard in most cases - the one he's selling apparently hit 3.5GHz).

Oh wow! Thanks a lot for that input! That is one very very tempting offer, that would solve most of my problems right there. But I fear after hanging around these forums just this week that I really need a better mobo/ATXcase.
Not maybe the fastest method to get what I want, but in the long run I'll be glad I did.

I'd love to see 5Ghz like you someday Chozart!

Note that the E6600 is a VERY capable chip; it's no slug in any way shape or form. At 3.5GHz, it'll match the GTX280 quite nicely. Granted, a 4.0GHz E8400 will give better performance in SOME games, but many games are GPU limited, and a decently overclocked core 2 duo like the E6600 will do just fine.

If your a bit cash strapped, it's an excellent solution for both now and the long(er) term. I'd say, get the E6600, then save another $100 for a new mobo like the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L and $125 or so for a case and CPU cooler. Once done with that, start saving seriously for a Nehalem based rig. Nehalem is Intel's new architecture that should come out early next year.

Wow. Intel's near future technologies?! From the sound of it this Nehalem is clearly different. Though I wasn't able to find out how this will directly effect future computers.
I take the Nehalem "processor" would need a new motherboard? If this is something to get excited about, I would gladly wait for this rather then buy a mobo that might get tossed fast...

If this is the case maybe I would reconsider that E6600. I'm sure I could live with that and this mobo till Nehalem, right?
