well how do i find the toledo core ones...those are like the 4400+ and cost a crap load of money...at least more than i can afford.....i'm probably not going to overclock just becasue i NEED it to last 3-4 years...til i become a soph in college.....I think the 3800+ will be plenty amazing for me though....unless you have better computer options for $650 then i think this will be amazing enough for me

what you have in the specs is super fine. If you do want something better, you're going to have to spend more money. Any cheaper, your system won't be as good as you have it now. I hear that the Manchester core OC better than the Toledo core. Hmmm, confusing. I don't care. I'm going with the Toledo core because it has more cache.

You mean the MSI K8N Neo4 motherboard? It supports 4x SATA 150 and 2x ATA 133. It's a good board.

What you have for your new specs will do fine. For me, I am willing to spend much more and get something better. I don't usually like to go halfway on a PC. It's all or nothing with me. At the time of my build, the 6600GT was very popular and was considered a high performance video card. Not anymore. But it still gets the job done just as I am sure your new setup will too.

If you're not a gamer, that setup is even better suited for you. I would go ahead with the order right now. The dual core setup will be really good with the OCZ RAM.
