go with the 650i, its much cheaper and has very much the same features as the 680i, unless you really obsessed with tweaking your system to get 25 more points in 3dMark06 then i doubt it will matter performance wise.

Well, I am not sure about the 650i vs. 680i situation. So yeah, that is something you might want to consider.

Well, the e6600 is an Overclocker's processor of choice. I have mine at 3.8 on air with no problem.

If you get a cheaper dual core, you will get a lower speed rating. Even if you OC, you will not get to the level that an e6600 can get to.

Just out of curiosity, which C2D do you like?


P.S.

Speed=good.

C2D= core 2 duo.

Don't get me wrong. If you get the e6300,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115005

it will be OK too, but you will have to OC it like crazy for it to be a good gaming proc.

Crysis? Celeron?

That's like oil and water... but listen
start saving up. Get a job. I started working at McDonalds two years ago and bought everything for myself. Give yourself some time... a lot of time, and when you're ready, start looking for a new build.

Get hte one I recommended. If you need somebody to back it up, ask anyone.
I did say a system LIKE mine. Obviously there are some flaws
The PSU probably is underpowered for 2 gts's but why you'd do that i have no idea. The ram is ok but to really get the most out of the processor you need 6400 ram.
The mobo is great! No need to spend loads more to get tiny benefits.
As for the processor...
