i acually suggest you get the new E6300 in the intel Pentium dual core range. its got a faster FSB (im pretty sure) and i higher clock speed, 2.5GHz E5200, 2.8GHz on the E6300, and i think you will ind its more overclockable. ermm, probably go with an asus or gigabyte. asus P5KPL - CM is good, but also there is a J&W board, the IP43 - S is very good, probably better then the asus one. it doesnt have onboard, but seriously, get a video card, its just SOOO much better.
