That E6400 will be quite a bit faster, and will OC far better as well. It'd be an improvement to say the least. ;)

You're obviously a gamer if you have an 8800GTS so I would strongly recommend a minimum of 1GB of RAM, as 512MB just won't cut it for newer games.

To get the most out of the system a E6300 or E6400 + 1.5GB ram, 1GB total is the minuim otherwise there will be alot of caching games will play horrid.
2GB for optimal performance.

Word of the wise, do some research if you are planing to overclock. I have and e6400. My old mobo, going from 2.13ghz to 2.3ghz results in boot failure (tho I exchanged it the next day, never listen to people that work at computer stores). This mobo (P5B) right now I am running 3ghz on stock heatsink/fan. I can overclock more but till I get better cooling I'm not.

Ps. It's 127.0.0.1

^ He's right. The Allendale(E6400)'s and Conroes overclock better on the P965 (Asus P5B Deluxe / Gigabyte) boards better than the 945's. Go with a 965/975 board if you have the money. It could be the difference on the E6400 between 2.3gHz-->3.6gHz(which a buddy of mine runs on his P5B Deluxe).

Hahaha that made me laugh, yeah I forgot a number but I know what it means :D. Well I will have to up the RAM indeed, gonna do some more saving, I want to get it upgraded quickly because there's video lag in World of Warcraft :thumbdwn: I find it sad really, but we'll see what happens.

Congrats OP ! I hope you enjoy the card,you made a great choice ! After you get the E6400 (Might want to wait a little and see what the E4300's oc to) get yourself a oc'able 2 Gig kit of ram,as you are starving your system with just 512,and would still be starving it with 1024...1.5 gigs at the least,2 Gigs is perfect for gaming.Best of luck in the future ! :)
I think you would see a far better change in day to day use,and especially gaming if you did a 2 Gig kit first before the cpu...

Seems about right that's around the zone the GTS' get in on 3DMark06.
