Great Mobile Processor

Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4 GHz 3MB L2 Cache Socket P 25W Dual-Core BX80577P8600 Processor
Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4 GHz 3MB L2 Cache Socket P 25W Dual-Core BX80577P8600 Processor

Pros: Fast, affordable, low wattage, cool, 45 nm.

Cons: None

Overall Review: The mirror finish on the proc works well with arctic silver. I put this in a Compal JHL90 with a 9600m GT and it runs most games on medium/high settings at around 50-60 fps.

Great Overclocking

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 - Core 2 Duo Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80570E8400
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 - Core 2 Duo Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80570E8400

Pros: Fast, cool, 45nm, highly recommended as nothing else can really touch it. Much higher overclocking potential compared to quad core, better for gaming.

Cons: Stock cooler is pretty wimpy, but that is to be expected. Plus if you are going to buy a high end cpu, you should go for some sort of aftermarket cooling.

Overall Review: Have mine running at 3.8 on air and it idles at around 28C. Paired with a G92 8800GTS and fast ram this thing is killer.

Great Mobo

ASRock ALIVENF6G-VSTA AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 or 6150SE / nForce 430  (Depend on the version) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock ALIVENF6G-VSTA AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 or 6150SE / nForce 430 (Depend on the version) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: 4 sataII, sturdy, great sound, good driver cd, supports phenom, great support, up to date bios,cheap.

Cons: North bridge gets a little warm with overclocking.

Overall Review: Never tried this thing with a graphics card because i am using it for a server application. I loved this thing so much after building a comp for my parents that i bought myself one.

Great Midrange Proc

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 2.2 GHz Socket AM2 65W Processor - ADO4200DOBOX
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 2.2 GHz Socket AM2 65W Processor - ADO4200DOBOX

Pros: Fast, great over-clocker with an after-market fan, Cheap,65nm.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: Idles at 25C on air with an arctic cooler 64 pro, and 30C OC'd to 2.97GHZ (11.0*270mhz). I am using it for a gaming server and could not be happier, just make sure that you pair it with fast ram to get the most out of it.

Pretty Sweet

HIS Radeon X1950PRO 512MB GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card H195PRF512DDAN-R

Pros: Fast, cool (rarely gets above 50 C) Runs all of my games at full settings and gets over 60fps. Best AGP card for the price.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: It saved me from upgrading to PCIe for a little while.
