I've decided to make the switch to a C2D rig within the next month. I need a few suggestions though.<br />
<br />
I'd like to go with a E6400 or the E6600, but im a little mixed on the mobo and memory. I've heard good things about the P5B deluxe.<br />
<br />
I'd like to keep the RAM under $250.<br />
<br />
I'll be keeping my power supply, hdd, case, sound card and possibly the video card.<br />
<br />
Throw out some suggestions. Thanks in advance.

I have had excellent success with the P5B-D WiFi (0711 BIOS) and Patriot Extreme RAM. The RAM cost $215.00 from the Egg (before they shot up to $249 - bastiches <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> )<br />
<br />
Dark side, eh? I heard they have cookies...

</div>Micron D9s for under $250? Maybe in 1GB flavor but we highly recommend the G.Skill DDR2 800 HZ stuff because most likely you'll get D9s. <br />
<br />
Here's another great alternative to the G.Skill: <a href="http://www.tankguys.biz/ddr2-44410-800mhz-p-1645.html?osCsid=f5d8004939518dcfa6dfd393392e13c3" target="_blank">http://www.tankguys.biz/ddr2-44410-8...dfd393392e13c3</a><br />
<br />
I used to like Cosair but since that they no longer have D9s in their C4 DDR2 800s, I decided to check out other brands, so those will be the two choices IMO.

Ditch G.skill and get something that will perform better.<br />

Thanks for the help guys. If everything works out ill be ordering by the end of the month.<br />
<br />
I thinking this is going to be the ideal setup:<br />
<br />
-E6600<br />
-ASUS P5B Deluxe<br />
-<a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820148017" target="_blank">Crucial DDR2 667 </a>(Micron D9s)<br />
<br />
I'll stick with everything else in my current rig and wait on a video card until DX10.
