    If you can, try to get a Nforce 680i chip from EVGA. It's a $260 dollar motherboard. It's extremely flexible when it comes to overclocking. Every time I build a computer, I build it with the best motherboard I can afford. Is this the best that you can afford?

    pretty much. I know this has onboard video which will allow me to limp along until I get a video card.

    First off, If you're really struggling for a decent laptop, I reccomend you degrade the CPU to something like an E6300 or E6400. With the extra $100-140 bucks you save, you can put that into a Nforce 680i motherboard from EVGA.

    Why do you need an E6600 over the E6300 or E6400 anyways? Do you really need the extra processing power? The E6300 is plently fast just to let you know ^_^
