In the US we can get the processor for ~300 get a good mobo for ~150-300 (depends on what you want) and some high performance good RAM for ~ 100-150 = ~550- 750 USD which is around ~225-375 your currency. Hope I helped

This of course counts on you guys having the same price for the parts mentioned of course.

Hope I helped!

Is this board any good.. im thinking of scrapping buying RAM and going for this board with a Q6600 or a E6850.
I've never been a fan of MSI because whenever I've researched new motherboards, they never seem to do quite as well as other manufacturers.

Not saying that it applies to this board tho..it might be a stonker..

Yeh, i deleted to post as you replied. lol.*read the one above* The Abit IP-35 pro is a decent board though isnt it? And the Q6600 a decent CPU? or would the E6850 produce alot less heat? Heat dosent really bother me just the cooler the better

And with the money saved from the RAM i think im gonna buy a thermochill 240mm rad.

IP-35 = Yes

Q6600 = Yes

My personal preference would be the E6850 over the Q6600 (that's what im getting on my new build) purely because the E6850 should overclock a fair bit higher and IMO only servers need quad core at the moment.
