Same CPU cooler with artic silver 5 - already buyed
Gigabyte P35-DS3 mobo - already buyed
same RAM
ECS 9600GT 512MB - still not buyed
same case and HDDs
Cooler Master eXtreme Power 550watts (dual 12V rail, 16amps each) - already buyed

Your psu will handle that just fine. Looks good, except go for the 8400 (unless your getting the 8200 on the seriously cheap front). Usually just a bit more for a nice leap in performance.

no a 8200 will almost always do 4.0ghz in a p35 motherboard matching most e8400s. Save the money and get the e8200 if your going in that direction. Also how much are you spending on a video card and where are you located. Really I'm not sure why you are buy a e8200 and a new motherboard to begin with. Get a amd tri core 148.00 or better yet get a new amd quad 9750 for 215.00. I just looked your motherboard supports most of the new quads and tri cores . Then just buy a new video card and maybe some better ram. The e8200 is not better than these chips and if it is not by much save yourself some trouble.

Well sure it will its a 45nm core 2. $10 more (like on newegg) for a 9 multi instead of 8 is a far better value imo. Thats a pretty big difference for a very small price.

Edit: I'm sorry, $5 more. If you are in the us, e8400 hands down. If you can save $20 or so by going with the 8200, then sure, but for $5, thats a no-brainer.

I'm panning to OC my system, so I tink the e8200 will be just fine, I think I will not be able to push it to 4GHZ with my current cooler but reaching 3.6-3.7GHZ will be enough.

Mexico amigo mio :)

Here ALL hardware ARE MUCH MORE expensive than USA....goverment taxes, taxes and more taxes.

The difference between the e8200 and e8400 it's almost 70 bucks......buying the 9600GT, the e8200, the P35 mobo and the CM PSU will pass the $500 bucks barrier.

Whoa, well then, absolutely get the e8200. Thats crazy, 70 pesos or american dollars?

Edit: I do agree w/ trt that unless you are interested in having benchies, you'd be better off just upgrading the cpu and vc and saving yourself some money.

70 dollars...

the 9600 via mercadolibre (mexican version of eBay) costs aprox 210 bucks and THA'TS ULTRA cheap, here in my VERY FEW local stores the cheapest costs near the $300 dollars.

the same thing with the mobo, it costs me $140 bucks, the e8200 costs $220 aprox., the PSU cost me $60 bucks so:

$210
$140
$220
$ 60

AAAARRRGHHHHHHHHH!!!!

JESUS CHRIST, $630 DOLLARS.......what a rip-off.

See if you can find a cheaper 8800gs or 9600gso around there. They tend to be cheaper an offer nearly equivalent performance. And look into maybe just a phenom like trt said.

Heya CH@NO,

Wouldn't even bother with a processor even unless you truly want to get it. Do just a video card for now and save up a little bit for your next build. :)

EDIT: But then again you already bought the motherboard. Go e7200!

the weird thing is that the 8800gs are more expensive, and I cannot find the 9600gs model....in fact I hope still catch a ECS 9600GT model, other ones like PNY and XFX cost aprox. $265 bucks.

About remain with AMD I made up my mind time ago, and I already buy the P35 model.....hahaha, and I cannot buy an X4 model 'cause the few stores that's sells the model still offers the B2 stepping.

I cannot find it........buying hardware here IS A PAIN!!, i mean, the stores here sells many hardware, but focused only on low-end models so find newer, mid-range and high-end things cost a bit of trouble....almost anything need to be buyed online (cities near USA)

I'ts cause of that I'm after the e8200 model
