    I would be looking for e8400 type Setups.. People keep parting out there old rigs every day on this board, and a P5 based rig is the logical next step.

    You might could go for a new AMD based rig if you could expand your budget a bit...

    And you could use your old HD/Case/PSU for the time being and slowley upgrade them later?

    Ehh actually you'd have to find a different mobo/Ram now that I think about it...So the decision would be going AM3 and paying more for a board and Ram, or staying AM2+ and getting a slightly slower CPU with cheaper Ram/Motherboards.

    I may have a complete system up for sale in the next couple of weeks. It would be:

    DFI LP DK 790FXB-M2RSH AM2+ NewEgg.

    AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz NewEgg

    BFG 9800GTX OC2 with an Accelero triple fan cooler

    4gb GSkill DDR2 800

    Western Digital 250gb 7200rpm 16mb buffer

    Asus DVD burner Dual Layer SATA

    All in a NZXT Tempest case seen HERE

    I may be willing to ship this sooner, providing you would really need it :)

    I would do probably right at your $400 budget shipped to you. It would ship UPS ground. About the only other thing would be for you to add the little bit extra to pay for the insurance. I would not ship this system without insurance for obvious reasons lol.

    PM me if your interested in this. I have played Crysis, Battlefield, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Grid, Oblivion, FarCry 2, and many more at virtually maxed out settings.

    Stinger is a SOLID buyer and trader, if the specs are what you are looking for I would not think twice about buying from him! :toast:
