Hello Everyone, I'm a bit confused on the vast variety of CPU's and mobo's in the market. I need a second opinion from the experts on some parts for my brothers PC, they will want to play Mass Effect and Fable 2 later on at decent resolution. And all of this for about 500 dolla or maybe less... I will list my recommendation to him below but I need some comments on my picks. Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L Patriot Extreme Performance 4GB (2 x 2GB) SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3870 512MB Basically what I'm trying to figure out is: 1. Is the E6550 OK... or E7200 is a better price/performance option? Other recommendations are more than welcome! 2. Don't need a mobo with OC capabilities, just compatible solid and durable. Is there a cheaper and better option for something like the one I picked? 3. Does DDR2 1066 Ram make a noticeable difference? Should I stick with just DDR2 800? Thanks in advance!
