Hello, ive always built AMDs im sick of them switching over to INTEL i just bought some parts and now its down to the mobo/cpu i need some help..
*PS im on a low budget


Case: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Power-Up...X-Power-Supply
^i know the case is crappy as well as the psu im sure the psu will go bad within weeks of the system being up....

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145184

GFX card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130378

^ i hope that psu that comeswith the case will do the job im not trying to OC anything....

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128345

^although reviews are bad my roomate has one and never had a problem with this board at all..and my memory is compatible with this board.

CPU: this is where im at a loss should i get the e7500, e8400, or just go with the e8500 i was debating between the 7500 and 8400 will i notice the difference in performance from the 6mb cache to 3mb cache

E7500: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...5056&Tpk=e7500

E8400: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115037

E8500: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115036

^this is the cpu my roomate has one hell of a cpu but idk if its really worth it will i notice the difference by a lot between the 8400 and 8500 i know i probably will from the 7500 just not too sure...im only using this comp to play mmos i would like to order the parts tonight...thanks much for all your help guys...also any suggestions for other parts that are a better buy i would love thanks much for ur time and concern.

*also if i get sp1 64bit vista home basic...i was told by a local computer store guy that any vista other then premium or ultimate is crappy and very buggy and not worth getting...also the 4gb ram should work fine with sp1 64 bit it should read and use it all ?

^ i take it thats the heatsink u were talking about also...since that cpu shaves a good 100bucks off my price should i pick up a better GFX card to make up for that and or should i get a nice cast antec 900 with a psu combo at 170 from newegg?

well if i keep my crappy 9500gt and mail in rebate itll only cost 50 total...and if i return my case i get 40 back - the 15% restock fee so like 34back... the new cpu is 65.85 from dell...40 for the heatsink 100 for the mobo 100 for vista 64bit home basic and 90 for that raidmax case above....i understand where u guys are coming from with my card being older and crappy but i honestly dont have the budget to go up in price too much

right i understand with the gfx card thing but after rebate its 50 5 more then what itll cost. but is there a huge difference in quality i will notice playing world of warcraft if i did get this card u suggest? and is it worth returning my gfx card and paying the 15% restock fee.

yea i wish i had the budget to pick one up but i dont so is it really worth swapping the 9500gt for the 9600gt

true connor i could just hold off on the gfx card now wait for all the rebate money...and then get a gfx card but who knows how long those rebates will take
