I am planning on purchasing some new components in the next week or so and just wanted to get some opinions from others in case I was making any glaring mistakes. I will be using a case, psu and hard drives from my current setup and I already have a bfg 8800gt.
Will be using a Zalman CNPS 7000 with an adapter clip for 775 that i've had in my socket 939 for the past 2 years.
Do these sound like good choices? Any opinions on somethings I should do different? I am on a budget and can't spend to much more than this but figure I should get decent performance for it. Someone on another site suggested I go with the e4500 but I don't think the $50 difference is worth it.

Your link is no worky.
E2160 has a mutliplier of 9. 9 x 400 = 3.6ghz. Any DDR2-800 ram is fine.
Looks good. Heck, I would go so far as to pick up the $50 celly & o/c this mofo 100%.
I am on a budget but I don't think I'm willing to go the celeron route. I just would rather spend less now on something adequate and later on I can still have the option of getting a quad core or something.
