From experience i would ALWAYS get the best you can out of your budget because in the end when you want to play a new game you will regret it. You mentioned starcraft. SC2 is coming out soon and im sure it could utilise the extra power. IT may save you from upgrading the whole PC in the future.
u know what i didnt mention SC2 but omg good point i will be playing that as well. TY

The P5Q-E OCs like a champ. So does the Gigabyte UD3P.

the p5q will definitely allow higher clocks if you ever plan on overclocking. the p5q has crossfire support which will allow you to hook up 2 ati cards instead of 1. the p5q has 2.0pci express support (you wont see a difference unless you planned on getting a high end card like a gtx280/hd4870) vs the 1.1pci express that the g31 has; basically pci express 2.0 will allow more bandwidth, but no cards up to date really use that much bandwidth except for the gtx280/4870s; even still, the difference is very little. the g31 actually has pretty good overclocking abilities on dual cores, just because its only 54$ doesnt mean it cant overclock. my mate has a g31 with an e5200 clocked to 4.0ghz with a 25$ cooler.

sorry, but thats a wallet full of bull crap.

i can provide you full evidence that it can handle crysis all high dx9 with a 5400+ crappy amd processor getting over 30 frames.

why not add 6$ more for 2 more gb of ram?. i dont know where else would you find a 2x2 kit for 24$. seriously? 24$ for a 2x2 kit? where the hell do you shop?

otherwise; i do agree with you on the hard drive.

...thats a 9600GT a completely different card. And even if it does get 33fps on the benchmarks certain parts of the game will drop down to below 20 which would make it hard to play.

the difference between ddr2 800 vs ddr2 1000 isnt much . save your money and just get regular ddr2 800 2x2 kits


the build in my signature below got me 51.17 frames avg enthusiast settings in crysis warhead with the airfield flythrough benchmark and my system costed less than 600$ and i bet you anything my system will handle s c 2 as well
