Would a lower processor (Such as 3200+) perform just as good possibly, or in the region of performance, or is it reccomended I stay with 3500+ ?

I'd suggest that instead. Not only is it slightly better since it has SSE3 instructions, but it's much cheaper than the Winchester on zipzoomfly.

I'd like to stay away from OEM because of its lack of a warranty.
