I've looked at some pretty good Intel builds lately, and was wondering if anyone could help me out.

What all do I have to replace? My memory for one, cause I don't think Intel supports DDR400.

A new GPU? Mobo? And a GFX card? Anyone lead me in the right direction, I'm more or less interested in a duo-core. I'm on a 700-800 dollar budget canadian.

Yes the GPU card will be fine with Intel Mother boards mate...If its PCI-E of course.

As for your RAM it isnt Native to LGA 775 however you can get Hybrid Motherboards to allow the use of AGP/PCI-E/DDR1 with lga 775

I just looked up your motherboard. Its an AGP card... So yes you will need a new video card as well. Though luck man.

Right now the C2D pwns any AMD. It's just a fact. AMD will catch up. But the C2D are nicely priced and way more powerful than the AMDs. If I was spending money on a new rig right now I'd be getting an intel no doubt.

Got mine for $312 at Tiger Direct. I used to have the same processor as you and what a difference. I used to love AMD's but these Core2s are sick. It is worth the money if you have it.
