So then you need a CPU, RAM, and motherboard for $500?
Core 2 Duo E6400 $187
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115004

Abit IB9 $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127018

2 GB G.Skill DDR2-800 RAB - $80
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098

That comes out to about $370, so you've got a bit left for a DVD burner, case, etc.

Since you are using it for gaming, you would need a bigger case to allow for more airflow since stuff gets hot while gaming... Slimline cases wouldn't allow the airflow of ATX cases...correct me if I'm wrong.

Since no one answered this yet, I will. THe 6420 is slightly better. the only difference between the two is a larger L2 cache on the 6420. The 6400 has 2MB the 6420 has 4MB

which would be better, the intel e6420 or the amd 5600x2, because the amd is 2.8 ghz and the intels only 2.13

I belive the Intel. However, the best way to tell is by price. If they are of similar prices, the Intel in the group will out-perform the AMD. However, if that AMD is higher by over $75, it will be the better of the two.
