Best Cheap Cpu

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a CPU that best mixes performance and price. Actually, better put, I'd like to get a barebones kit that does this. Looking to spend maybe $200-$300 on the kit, expandability should be placed with a premium, both in drives and slots.

Thoughts from anyone?

Looks like this was posted about a year ago--did you ever get one? I'm in the market now for something similar...

if you are going dual core go for the e4300 (1.8Ghz).

mine is running stable and cool overclocked to 2.4Ghz (and i can go up to 3.4 with my extra cooling)

Aw man, if you're lucky you may find a Core 2 Quad Q6600 for under $300, but right now the demand is so high that the price jumped up a few as 75$ more.

Now I'm waiting even longer for the price to go back down.
