Alright great, I appreciate it man. Now that would run pretty well if I upgrade the PSU and RAM?

Give me your mobo specs when you can and I will recommend you crap. Also, here is a pretty cheap, yet very good build that I thought up of the other day, you might want some of the components on it. Now, the CPU, Mobo, and GPU go hand in hand so you don't want to get any one without getting the others.

CPU
Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe 2.13GH
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115016-$186.00
Mobo
MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130081- $149.99
HDD
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS 250GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148261 - $64.99
RAM
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034- $107.00
PSU
COOLMAX CW-650T EPS12V 650W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159056- $109.00
GPU
EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130062 - $89.99

Total= $757.96 w/o shipping or tax

Ah hold on. Give me the specs of your rig, and I will say what I think. As for the e6850, that CPU is NOT going to work with a mobo that has a 1066Mhz FSB. You NEED a mobo with 1333Mhz FSB. Also, sorry for being frank, but screw the 650i, if you are going high budget, get the 680i, much better chipset.

Give me the specs and I will say what I think about it. You can also talk to me on AIM.
