Hi everyone.
NEED HELP !!!!

I have a opportunity to upgrade my processor. With the money I can buy a C2D E6300 or buy a C2D E4400 and change my cheap MB P5VD2-X to a ASUS P5NSLI or ASUS P5LD2-SE

My actual config is:
MB ASUS P5VD2-X
PENTIUM D 925 3.0Ghz
2Gb DDR2 533Mhz

Possible options to upgrade:

A) Upgrade only the processor and stick with my actual mobo and RAM (price ~150U$).
. MB ASUS P5VD2-X
. C2D E6300
. 2Gb DDR2 533Mhz

or

B) Change the processor to a cheaper C2D E4400 and upgrade my mobo and RAM to a MB ASUS (P5N-SLI or P5LD2-SE) and DDR2 667Mhz (price ~200U$)
. MB ASUS (P5N-SLI or P5LD2-SE)
. C2D E4400
. 2Gb DDR2 667Mhz Dual Channell

Some information:
Model / Clock / FSB / Cache
E6300 / 1,86 GHz / 1.066 MHz / 2 MB
E4400 / 2.00 GHz / 800 MHz / 2 MB

I'd get the cheap mobo the E4400 and DDR 800.

Well kinda depends actually. Do you want to OC. DDR800 is not much more than 533 / 667 hence why i recommend it.

But I can't spending more money in mobos with DDR2 support.

I dont want to OC. I'll run all in stock !

I live in Brazil. Here mobos with c2d and ddr2-800 are very expensives...
