    Coming from a two year old E2180 OC @ 2.6, Gigabyte G31, 2GB DDR800 in an Antec Aria w/ 5 yr old proprietary PSU. Picked up an Antec P180 Mini to move everything into, but put a for sale listing up on Craigslist for the current setup and got a bite today at $275.

    Looking to pick up a mATX MB/CPU/RAM/PSU for $275-$350ish. Will sacrifice out of box performance for something that OCs well. Want 4GB and onboard video that's an 'upgrade' to my current onboard G3100. Any suggestions?

    Since I put the ad up I tweaked the current setup to 3.1Ghz, this little CPU is a beast. Will miss it unless I can find something that will hit 3.5-4Ghz on a stock cooler with a larger cache.

    Used for 60% email and porn, 20% photoshop, 20% video encoding/burning. Don't need a monitor, hd, periphs, case, etc.

    You're on the fents about what to do? I'd suggest you invest in a good spell checker before anything else.

    Are you saying I should stick to the detailing subforum? :rofl:

    That's an option I was considering. Would have to buy a 4GB kit @ $100ish
