Hi All,

I would like to update my computer system and it seems like the Intel E6400 would be a good starting choice. What would be your recommendations for a good - but not necessarily top of the line - set of components to build around it? What I want is the most bang for the buck!

My viewpoint: If I can overclock the setup a little, without having to purchase an exotic cooling system...great! BTW, I won't need a gamer's video card since I'd never use it. What would you propose I buy? Here's my list:

power supply
video card
memory - 2 Ghz

I thank you for your help, much appreciated!

A budget would be nice, you can get a great hsf for about $50, so oc'ing is definitely possible.
