I am just shopping for ideas regarding a budget gaming build. The Core 2 Duo can be overclocked to run PCSX2. However, I think my PC-gaming will benefit more in the long run from 4-cores.

For the CPU, MoBo, GPU, and Ram, I currently have a budget of about $600. I do plan on overclocking, but I would be content to start off with the retail HSF. Whatever video card I start off with will probably be upgraded in two years. This PC will probably be my main gaming rig for a total of four years.

Please share you ideas on the components that are a good fit for my budget.

You can get Phenom II x2 550. Its AM3 which is going to last long because it came out only a while ago.

As spyhop said don't cheap out on the PSU. It is a very common mistake made by people on a low budget . Feel free to ask any more questions.
