dont get a 3500+, IMO biggest waste of money. Get a 3000+ and invest the difference in a better video card or better RAM.

the price difference is like 50 dollars, and the 3500 comes with a mobo. if ur going to build a budget gaming pc, u should have at least a 3500

buy a 3200+ venice, can overclock like crazy, mine's at 3.5GHz on stock cooling, never reaches 40 degrees celcius, faster than a 3500+ at that speed. extremecomputers, don't even, yes, i built my rig on a budget, but it runs averything insanely well, HL2, DOOM3, BF2, FEAR, CS:S, WOW, COD2, runs them all smooth.
