    I was going to say a q66 but they are more expensive so I would say yes that is quite good :D since you might be able to get about 4ghz out of it :p but the best bang for buck is a free cpu ;)

    Excellent b4b, but if it doesn't have a Q or QX in the name it does nothing for your e-penis. :roll:

    not worried about titles just love this forum.

    A cheap P35 motherboard,a e7200 oced to 4.0ghz ,a 4850 , 2gb of DDR2 800, 150gb hardrive and you have a excellent budget gaming system. With these systems specs it would have been the fastest systems two years ago and cost around 1700.00. Now you could put it all together for around 500.00. Amazing

    I know how you feel. I did not ask for mine.
    Maybe you need one like "Don't look here, read the posts!"

    heheh

    I agree, and if you have a nice one, possibly like the one I have, with the Gigabyte P45 board I just got, got some meh DDR2, 2x1 GB Crucial Ballistix ddr2 800, single sided. Hopefully they will be nice and give me some good times.

    yep id agree with that the E7200 is great value sure it doesnt have the l2 cache of an E8400 but its still an excellent cpu.

    definetly agree, good amount of cache on the chip 45nm oc's like a mofo and does it at lower fsb due to it's high multiplier, which is abonus for those who don't have the uberclocking motherboards. I never though I'd see the day come back where a 500$ gaming system could play everything out there at a high detial level, but thanks to the e7200, cheap p35 mobo's, dirt cheap dd2 and the 9800gtx/4850 it's here.
