Well, its been a while since I've upgraded. So I was thinking of what I could do to make my PC much better. The things I want to get rid of are A) AMD 939 socket 3700+ B) DFI NF4 SLi-D mobo C) HDD D)RAM<br><br>
Truly, i've never tried intel. So I've decided to switch over to it. Now, from those items I'm guessing I should be able to pull about $250-$300. I'll probably get about another $300-$400 for xmas to blow away on my new rig. So basiclly, for about $600-$700. What exactly is avalible out there *Currently* in the intel market. BTW, I will need a new water block aswell (W/C)

E6400 - <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819115004" target="_blank">$220</a><br>
P5B Deluxe - <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131045" target="_blank">$185</a><br>
2x1Gb PC2-6400 - <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231087" target="_blank">$250</a><br>
TDX 775 - <a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=21&cat=21&page=1" target="_blank">$53</a><br><br>
Total: $708<br><br>
That'd be ideal, IMO. Keep the hard drive, unless you want some <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822136003" target="_blank">320GB</a> beast ($100) or something - you'd have to get <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820231088" target="_blank">1gb</a> ($140, $110 cheaper) of ram then.

Those suggestions look pretty reasonable to me. OCZ has some good PC2-6400 for a few dollars cheaper after rebate, and it has very good reviews (the same stuff I have).<br />

Which water block do you currently have? You can always just get a new back plate for it for a fraction of the cost of a new block. Personally, I'd go with an Apogee over a TDX solely for the compatibility issue. Both should provide similar cooling, but the Apogee is compatible with a wide variety of sockets right out of the box. The TDX requires a different backplate for each socket.
