    recomendations are hard without a price and purpose for the machine.

    if i was to do a new build today for myself i would start with a core 2 duo in a nf650i mobo with some ddr2 pc 6400.

    other than that its back to my first line.

    im sure that a good clean and possibly some new thermal paste would help your over heating problem.

    @ryan
    i must of started as you posted, thats not going to fit a socket a mobo tho :)
