Default If I were to build Again

What kind of suggestions would you give me if I were to build again.

Taking in consideration :

This would be my second build.

And yes I play Everquest2. So I would want a "Game" type system. Although I would use it for other things as well.

Money: Well I would not prefer to spend more than 2, 000 US Dollars and I would probably reuse my Flat Screen Monitor (Digital).

I know nothing about overclocking and although I guess I understand why. I really don't think I would want to mess with that my self.

Ohh yea !! I like the Kewl stuff.

I am sure there are things I have left out. But I will edit later.

Please use your knowledge here to help me out. I am in no rush, but I have gotten the idea that I might want to update/upgrade/TRASH LOL my old machine.

Firstly, get an AMD CPU.

And change your sig to 5 lines. If Maurice sees it you he'll open up a can of whoop-ass on you

OK hope the sig is better, I am new here and did not mean to offend anyone. Just looking for a little advice and info from the experts.

Now my next question is why AMD. I have never had a machine with AMD.

lol, you didn't offend anyone, it's just Maurice has a 'thing' about long sigs.

Why AMD? Simply, for gaming they kick INTEL's ass. I don't know all the tech mumbo-jumbo, someone with a little more experience will probably reply with all that.

A lot of people will tell you to go with AMD but if you want to stay with intel then I suggest getting one of the new 65nm processors. Here's the one I would get Link

For a motherboard this one is really nice Link

For memory just get 2gb's and you should be good.

Well your hard drive is really good so you dont really need a new one of those. Unless you want to get another one for storage.

These are my suggestions just if you want to stay with intel.
