Ok, Had a change of plan as I cant afford to upgrade my gfx yet and have been advised to wait until R600 is released as 8800 prices will drop.

So, anyone else got any recommendations towards a new motherboard, cpu and memory combo.

Well the e4300 is a fair winner imo. Both me and llwyds have achived good results.

The P5B Dlx is probably best for hassle free computing/overclocking atm. But if your tight for money n dont mind messing round with northbridge heatsinks i can now recomend the P5N-E SLI.

So which is actually better, E6300 or the E4300 as the price difference is tiny.

6600, lil more cache and most likely a better clocker. peronally if i went C2D id go for the DFI board, its more expensive, h/e im sure kemp and frag will tell u its well worth it. and unless u want some faster ram ur ram should be fine.

edit: was in the middle of typing this when i saw smiths post, if theres a price cut u could just wait... again its all up to u

As soon as I transfer to a new case I will sort out my motherboards cooling I should be able to get past 3.4, from there, who knows lol. 16 sec SuperPi1M isn't to be sniffed at though lol

Well the 6300 has a bigger cache which C2D seems to thrive on, but the 4300 OC's further and has a better multi

Is this a "now" thing or can ya wait a bit for C2D price cuts as mentioned above?

Well I dont HAVE to upgrade now, just thought now was the right time, i know my rig can last another couple of months so could easily wait if the price cuts are going to be worth it.
