Need help choosing a Mother Board and CPU to go with it.

Need help choosing a Mother Board and CPU to go with it.

My Budget is 350.00
As over the summer I'm going to build a better Gaming Computer.

System:

DELL 530
Intel Duo Core E7300 @ 2.66
Dell Mother Board 0RY007
EVGA - GTX 460 SC 768meg
Crucial - Ballistix 2x2 4GB DDR2 PC2-6400 memory ( 4 Slots 2 Open)
Corsair - 650W

I've been looking at Bundles and they look pretty tempting.

This one I'm very interested in.

  1. Take the first one - P67A-C43 for it's better OC, power consumption, and future-proofing.
    You know you'll need new DDR3 RAM too, right?
  2. Out of those the I5 2500K is the best bundle performance wise.
    Little cheaper here http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.635170

    Thanks fellas,
    P67A-C43 Bundle good to go.

    Oh yes, DDR3 understood.
    Time to sell off the Ballistic.
    I'll start searching for DDR3 this afternoon.
    Any recommendations Noworldorder?

    Both are low profile should you decide to begin overclocking and want to get a large CPU cooler later on. We'll help when that time comes too. :)
