also, does am2 handle 4 sticks of ram well?
(if it does, then i will get 2x512mb for now. if not, then im going 2x1gb)
oh, and whats the importance of L2 cache? whats the difference between 512kb and 1mb. if the difference is that big, i will spend the extra $30 for a x2 4000+
anyway, here's the base of my system:
(x2 3800+ am2)
(Gskill 2x512 mb ddr2 800)
(MSI am2 SLi)
that right there is ~$720 which becomes about $800 after tax, shipping, etc.
then i have $200 for everything else... case, psu, etc. i can use the mouse, keyboard, hdd, monitor that i already have for now.
