I was building myself a PC with AMD 3500+ (possibly 3800+) single core processor and 2x 512MB DDR2 RAM. But then i've done some researching and built another config. with C2D E6400 processor, but I lacked of fundings (which are VERY limited) for another 512MB of DDR2 RAM. So i Don't know is D2C worth of sacrifing them, and buying them later (month or so)? :( :confused: :D

I'd say go with the c2d setup, but I would probably get 2 gigs of memory, seems to be the standard nowadays :p

Do you have a system that you can use till you save up some more cash? If so, then that's probably what I would do.

I've give you the best advice you need to hear. your answer lies in how many frame rates you can live playing with. a 3500 will do the job if you're not an extreme gamer. many here are or think they are ;)

what games ya playing?

You config'd an E6400 system and can't afford another $50 stick of ram? Drop to the E6300 and borrow <$20 from a friend/mom/dad/sister/brother/cousin/stranger:

$182 - Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz
$100 - Foxconn P9657AA-8KS2H Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express (review)
$50 - Wintec AMPO 512MB DDR2-800 3AMD2800-512M1-R
$50 - Wintec AMPO 512MB DDR2-800 3AMD2800-512M1-R
===========
$382 + tax and shipping

Then, do what everyone else does, and OC the hell out of that chip on stock cooling, lol. It can reach at least 2.6Ghz using the stock intel hsf.
