Not to take anything away from it, but just to clarify for him: The processor mentioned by Rich is brand new and will be released at the end of this month. It is also known as conroe or core 2 duo and it will be quite powerful. Good value IMO.
ok dude not to be rude, but you must not have read anything. All the intel fanboys will say CONROE! while AMD guys like moi say to wait for the conroe to be released because the amd chips will drop in price and if you do go with AMD, then you should look for an AM2 processor and mobo because they'll be better off for the long run while socket 939s will be cheaper but wont be around as long. but tahts the point of view of an AMD guy
