Default Help Me Choose

Okay, so the computer turns out okay, except that i have to get a refund my Gigabyte board, find a way to sell my 4800+ (if it still works), and the OCZ Vendetta 2 aftermarket HSF. I think i Ram might be a little damaged because it seems pretty slow, i will run Memtest later to find out, and i havent checked if my 8800GT yet.


*Skip this if you dont want to know what happened to my system*

Background
For those who doesnt know what happened to my computer, i recently bought a new OCZ 600W PSU, and swapped with a Gigbabyte board, and when i first install it, i heard a loud screeching noise and didnt stop till i unplugged it, then after a couple of hours, i heard a pop, and my whole system went down (came from the PSU because i saw a spark), then it just wouldnt post no more, put it back to my old motheboard, and it still wouldnt post. and i was freaking out because i was going to give the old board to an client of mine, and if the mobo died, i would i have to go buy a new one, and i just dont have the money. But everything turned out fine except what i said up there, and i got a refund from micro center for the PSU.


So anyways, i dont have a board to test my CPU, and i dont want to buy a new board to find out that the CPU doesnt work. So I think the Time is Now. The Time To Betray AMD, and Switch Over to Intel.

I need some help finding a board and CPU, my budget is $200 for now, i want a board that support DDR2 800, and PCI-E 2.0 if possible, and want a Core 2 Duo.

Right now i got an AMD board that doesnt support C2D, and has a Pentium D 2.80Ghz, and i am using my old ram, HDD, and drives.
So its kind of a big downgrade, and cant really game much until i get the board and CPU

Anyways, Thanks for those that helped.

i was thinking of getting that CPU, but not that Mobo, mainly because it only supports 667, and i want it to support 800, and PCI-E 2.0, and i want it to last me to about 1 year, I wont be Oc'ing by the way, and no micro ATX because my case doesnt support Micro, only ATX.
if i cant get them with $200, then please post some suggestion, and see how much i have to save up.
No Gigabyte boards please.
sorry for being a pain.

Edit - I was thinking of getting this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130185
it supports 800, PCI-E 2.0 X16. But my only concern is that will the ram slots interfere with an 8800GT dual slot?

or this

same thing, but again with the RAM slots. looks like it has nice cooling.
