Do you need an OS included in that price? Is that after shipping? Do you include Mail in rebates in that price? Is this PC for gaming, general use, video editing...?
April 20, 2009 8:06:21 AM

No i dont need an os in that price and its not after shipping and it is for general use and some time games

I want e8400 and vga card and optical drive is not necessary. I am currently in KSA

If you use integrated graphics then you can forget about playing games, its not going to happen...not to a satisfactory level anyways. You might be able to play 2+ year older games on low settings. On your budget the E8400 is kinda out of the question. The second-hand market might be a better option for you. If you want to use integrated graphics on an intel based build, then switch to this MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... The only decent integrated graphics is going to be on an AMD based build, using the 780g or 790gx chipset, which you could use with a PII x3 720, which is quite comparable to the E8400 but cheaper.

I don't know what you are asking...you want a good cheap case? Are you in the US?
April 20, 2009 9:23:16 AM

Can e8400 easily run on GA-G31M-E2L without overclocking
April 20, 2009 10:31:24 AM

Yes.
April 20, 2009 10:33:03 AM

For just gaming, the E8400 is a better option than the Q6600 because most games do not use quad cores, having faster clocked dual will give better gaming experience.

As I have said before, with your budget and if you want to play games, the E8400 is out of reach. You should go with an E5200 and overclock it, then consider an Nvidia 9600 GT or HD 4670 GPU or better. If you overclock the E5200, it will perform like an E8400, your games won't know the difference. The Motherboard you are looking at is a good option.

Thanks. I am not very much worried about the budget I can expand it to $500. The only thing i insist is that C2D E8400 with a gud vga as u have recommended. The only reason because of which I want a E8400 is that it has 6Mb cache. I dont want special casing. Would u recommend any other vga in my budget?

You need to get a PSU as well. Look for a Corsair or Antec PSU if you can find one around 450w.
