Whats your budget? If it about $180 just for the CPU and Motherboard, I recommend you go with a P35-DS3L/R and a E2180, you can OC the E2180 to 3Ghz+ and it will beat the 5200 in every bench mark, even if the 5200 is OCed.

Here are the 3.2Ghz results for the E2180:

Cooling: Thermalright Ultima 90 + Scythe S-Flex Fan - SFF21F + Artic Silver 5 - $66

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L Rev. 2.0 - $88


OS: MICROSOFT Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium - $97

GPU: EVGA GeForce 8800GT 512MB - $260

CPU: Intel Dual-Core E2160 Allendale 1.8GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - $83

Case: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 - $50

Drive: SAMSUNG Black SATA DVD Burner - $34

Ram: A-DATA Extreme Edition 2GB - $50

HDD: Western Digital Caviar RE WD3200YS 320GB - $90

Total: $918

You can take way the Ultima and save 66$, which will put it at $852. Which with the extra cash, maybe upgrade it to the new 8800GTS and stay below the 1000$ mark.
