Been on this damn Athlon XP 2600+ forever. Motherboard just crapped out, sata/usb/lan went bad. Also running a GeForce 6200 256MB, 1GB PC3200 Cosair.
Looking to go Core 2. Have been trying to get the Q6600 or E6850. Now I dont think my budget will allow. Did find a E6750/mobo combo at Fry's for $190 but the deal ended a day before i went Trying to stay below $400 USD.
Right now, this is what im looking at:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 - $193
2x A-DATA Value Series 1GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) - $48
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX
HIS Hightech H260PRF512DDN-R Radeon HD 2600PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Ex16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported
Shipping/Tax: $ 38.11
Grand Total: $435.07
Probably this internal/external SATA controller card for xbox 360 modding purposes
Still trying to decide if I should try and save ~$200 (get a good proc. and cheap video card/motherboard and upgrade them later) so I can get another 360 (sold my last one)
