I prefer intel since they generally perform better.

Does the amd outperform the 2.5 ghz stock, and i've seen 3.5-4 ghz stable on the e5200

Yes, it does outperform it. It is rated at 3.1Ghz. Intel will be a little more expensive though. of course who am I to talk though lol. Look at my sig, I also prefer intel.

However I do agree if I was doing the build I'd want a bluray, but for $30 difference based on my research the 4670 takes a big performance hit from the 4850. Please feel free to link me to info that proves me wrong and I'll appreciate it.
Ahh okay, that's fine then, I was just wondering why you'd drop a Blu-Ray drive in favor of a better videocard when someone told you they wanted a computer for watching HD video. I never said the 4850 wasn't a big step down from the 4850, but believe me it's perfectly sufficient for watching HD video. I still think the 4850 is overkill for a computer that won't be used for gaming, but hey it's her money.

Read my post above (I edited it after you quoted me) but a X2 at 3100mhz is equal to a c2d at 2325 mhz so even at stock its slower

well, if you want to stay intel lets try this board, and this cpu. The cpu is a little better than the one you originally had, and its a little cheaper with the 2 combined. about $148 opposed to $160. Also, im not quite sure if the board u have picked out will support a pentium dual core. It is rated for c2d and above with a fsb of at least 1333

I paid like $1000 for this a year ago .

And I still haven't been able to use it because of TLR reasons.

Bad shiz is bad.

I tried looking but couldn't find any worthwhile bundles on the Intel side.

According to the anandtech CPU comparison the X2 comes out on top when stock. Though I don't really know how the comparison is done

Thats a P31 board, which is horrible for overclocking. The E6300 is a nice cpu, but the E5200 should do everything she'd need and with the P45 you get better oc's. The E5200 is based on the core 2 duo archetecture

Never saw that, but I do know the C2D's overclock alot better.

alright, well it looks like you may have the best parts you can get. You are looking at the same mobo as mine. The only difference is that the one you will be getting does not have the extra PCIe slot.

Your board is actually much nicer. It has the ICH10R southbridge (supports onbaord raid of your hd's) where this one has the ICH10 southbridge (no native raid support) and your ATA slot supports ATA 133, where as this one is max of ATA 100, and your onboard audio is 8889 vs 8888, and you have onboard 1394 with 2 controllers for additional 1394 and last you have a second lan jack.

Your board is much nicer than this one.

It is essentially the same CPU, but the higher FSB of the E6300 will make that CPU much easier to OC. Also the E6300 has VT enabled, and if this person wants a 64 bit OS, or to upgrade later on, it would be a must (plus it overclocks better). And ya, get the EP43/45-UD3L mobo, you may pay a bit more, but in the long run, its a rock solid P43/45 mobo. Just my 2 coppers....
