Ok, I thought I had to go AMD for price so I purchased: AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 2.7GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Dual-Core black edition Foxconn A7GM-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard Now I am getting a lot of feedback that I should have stuck with Intel for my new build. So who can come up with a better Intel CPU & Mobo at around $150? E5200 with mobo? Would it be worth it to send the AMD back? Would I need a cooler for whatever you can come up with or is stock ok? Which would be better upgradable? Am adding it to: Crucial 2GB DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Western Digital WD 3200AAKS Caviar SE16 320GB SATA II 7200 Rpm 16MB Cache SATA Hard Drive Group Blue Storm II 500W ATX 2.2 SLI Ready Active PFC Power Supply GPU: Radeon X1950PRO 256MB PCIe GDDR3 I already have purchased these other components and got many at better prices than NewEgg so not inclined to change them, except maybe add memory. This will be a XP system with only occasional WoW gaming ect.
