My System Specs

Default

You really need to avoid motherboards with onboard graphics. The chipsets tend to run hotter and if you even plan on overclocking the system then you will not get nearly as much of an OC. Also, for the same price as a E6600, you could get a Xeon 3210 (Quad core) and have a more futureproof machine. A Quad core would also benefit 3D stuff (not games but your other plan).

Where are you shopping? What is your budget? These 2 pieces of info will help us help you the best.
