As you all know I have decided to upgrade and jump camps from AMD to Intel. This project was going to be a $300 Overclocker but I have decided to put a bit more money into it.

Motherboard: Asus P5K-E/WIFI-AP - $171.72
Processor: Intel C2D E4500 - $156.00
Memory: Mushkin HP2 PC2-6400 DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 - $89.99 - bought
CPU Cooler: Arctic Freezer 7 - $21.47
Memory Cooler: OCZ Active Memory Cooler - $19.01
Optical Drive: LG 18X Dual Layer DVD±RW SATA - $32.40

I am unsure of the PSU. Let me know if there is a better for around the same price.
Power Supply: OCZ Stealth Xtreme 600 Watt - $68.65

Total: $559.24

Parts I already have:
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon X1600 XT 256MB GDDR3 PCI-E
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 250GB 7200rpm SATAII
Case: Raidmax Xforce Mid Tower
Cooling: 2x120mm and 1x80mm Antec TriCool

Here is a better deal on the e4500
Intel Core2 Duo E4500 Processor - 2.20GHz, 2MB Cache, 800MHz FSB, Allendale, OEM, Socket 775, HH80557PG0492M, Processor in Canada at TigerDirect.ca
