1st off, LGA 775 is dead. If you want a bit future proofing, get AM3 + DDR3. CPU would be a cheap $100 quad X4 620. All you gotta do is change out the cpu/mobo combo. MOBO would be 770 for $80-ish.

The rest are good.


+1 If you are not comfortable overclocking then the X4 630 just came out and is now the $99 quad. X4 620 dropped to $90. Good deals, both of them.

AMD Athlon II X4 620 and 630
