Default The X2 5600+ Windsor 2.8GHz

Well i was thinking i could give up a few things on my custom computer to get these.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Windsor 2.8GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail 174$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103771

I just Found this Mobo While fooling around on newegg and i also have a friend that says that ASUS is one of the best brands out there.
ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131011

I will then probably have to go down to the Geforce6 seirse to do this.
I am ok at OCing but i dont really want to do it at risk of damage soo this processor seems right for me.
Plz tell me if these are good and solid brands that wont break down.

Also if anyone has a good CPU Heatsink and fan i could buy that'd b great (dont like factory Cooling) And Thanks in Ahead

Personally I would go for a Core 2 Duo if I were you, but the 5600 + is a solid CPU. The Mobo looks solid as well, good choice.

The M5N-SLI Deluxe is one of the best performance AM2 Mobos on the market right now and ASUS is a great brand, very reliable.

Any specific reason as to why you're choosing X2 over C2D though?

As for cooling, Zalman would be an excellent choice.

I own a Zalman 9700 NT and it makes my E6600 run about 16c lower than stock. It's kinda loud though.

Just because they're cheaper doesn't mean much.

Core 2 Duos have a much better price/performance ratio. And at this moment they out-perform the AMDs.
