Yeah... those AMD CPUs are really nice for budget builds though. Thanks to AMD, a gaming system of about $500 worth of parts can be had.

Aren't the quads expensive? IMO just get a C2d...

The Q6600 is made very affordable now. I got mine for 160, $280 on Newegg I think. The Phenoms are even cheaper.

It really depends on his budget here guys. If it were me, I'd just get a C2D and put another $100 toward a video card. I know the quads are nice but even my cheapo 4600 can run today's games fine.
