I need a...


Decent AM2 mobo, 2gb of RAM and a decent GFX card to go with it.

Anything up to £100 for the mobo and between £200 and £300 for the GFX card and surprise me with the ram :)

Dont plan to overclock or anything, just want stuff that works well straight out of the box.

On a new build with the sort of budget you talking about ... Core2duo all the way. No comparison between the two at the moment.

am24600x2 vs e6400. The 6400 is at least 10% faster and costs £10 less. Thats not even takinging into account low power consumption, Lower heat dissapation, etc. The cost to performance on Tom's hardware have the 4600@24 and the 6400@18 (lower is better and is a combined 50% games, 50% application comparison). In real terms thats 33% better value for money.
