Re: Possible build, need help and opinion.
i think in benchmarks the E7200 beat the 6000+ in most benches, since the 6400+ is only .2ghz higher than the 6000+ and the E8400 is .46ghz higher than the E7200, and it being an 45nm, and the AMD being 90nm, the E8400 can OC a lot if you are going to OC, and it will run cooler too. I would go with the E8400, though its a bit more than the 6400+
for the HDD, go with the samsung spinpoint F1
while everything else looks good so far.
