Yep, but I do actually agree save your money and do not buy a quad core for this build. Very few applications can utilize them, and the 45nm dual cores are out NOW. The E8500 can go as high as 4.2GHz!!! At those speeds it will outperform any quad core. If I could go back in time, I think I would've bought a dual core and then a quad when 45nm became mainstream.

OK thanks everyone,

worshipme - i want to get the quad core because newer games aplications in the future will be utulising the quad, but im sure a dual still would perform very well.

D-lew - Yes it is all in AUD and from www.itestate.com.au

Cheers

Crysis almost breaks the 2 gig barrier. So 2 gigs is enough for now, but that wont be true for a whole lot longer.

As for the quad core, I've heard that most multithreaded programs can use quad just as well as dual.. so I wouldn't go so far as saying quad core is a waste of money. I would get one.
