So, if i lower my budget I can get a core 2 real soon, so if I can come up with a satisfying system that costs <$1000 within the next month I will have a new core 2 duo. Here's what I had going before budget came into play.<br><br><br>
CPU - $230 <a href="http://www.wintroniccomputers.com/wintronics/viewProduct.jspa?product=ff8080810cf13f16010cf99ba3a70004" target="_blank">http://www.wintroniccomputers.com/wi...0cf99ba3a70004</a><br><br>

Hard Drive - $80 <a href="http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=007289&cid=HD.96" target="_blank">http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...7289&cid=HD.96</a><br><br>
Drives - $35 <a href="http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=002557&cid=CR.180" target="_blank">http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...557&cid=CR.180</a><br><br><br>
Total Store bought 563 + Tax = 645<br>
Total Online bought 563 total<br><br>
Total Total = 1208<br><br>
If we could get that down to 1000 CANADIAN that would be awesome, other than taht I'd have to wait till summer, when i could possibly go better mobo, CPU, and RAID0 those babies

If you *just* wanted to get a c2d rig you could drop down the RAM and graphics card a bit. Get 512mb of ram and a 7600 or something and you'd still have a c2d computer.. just not as good.<br><br>
However, if you want to game on it straight away, it looks like you have a pretty darn cheap rig right there already.
