I now have 4 year old Core 2 Duo.

All I will have to replace is motherboard, CPU, and RAM.

The upper midlevel processors should be in the $180 to $240 bracket.

4 gigs of DDR 3 RAM is about 50.

Looks like there will be motherboards from Intel and Gigabyte ranging from 120 or so on up. I"m looking for micro ATX around 150.

So, those 3 pieces will be circa 400 to 450, as I see it.

The processors should be at New Egg Jan 9. I think the NDA will be lifted circa Jan 5?
