    Looks like a good budget rig. Intel's stock coolers are decent, better than AMDs stock if you ask me.

    is a d805 is better than a 631? and i would go amd if there was am2 in Portugal, i think with a 631 he could easily buy later a better cpu. What about the board, i see the same one from asus for about more 30 euro cents, and without ddr2, worth it?
