Proprietary RAM sucks... I get compatibility issues. Totally cool with that. I try to avoid heavily proprietary #$%+ if I can. Lol. Once I bought ecc ram for a customer's non ecc mobo and set us back a couple of days. Customer was cool though.

I live in the NWT and if I bought the parts for $150 it would cost me $250 to $350 to ship it from Amazon. I don't shop Amazon just for that reason. They quoted me $35 to ship a $10 DVD.

Kind of pointless buying old hardware like this and building a system, when you could just pull an old computer from the scrapheap, down the road, with a core duo in it. There should have at least been one restriction on the build, like DDR4 for example.

My advice is: You gotta study what parts will give you the best bang for your buck. When you buy a pre-built PC, unless you get something bespoke, like origin or alienware, everything in it will be the cheapest possible, forcing you to change stuff like power supply and RAM right away, rather than just adding parts to it. Get The motherboard, processor, RAM, disks and power supply from the internet, then go local for things like case, monitors, keyboard and mouse. These things are the most subjective ones, which you get a feel everyday. Got my brother a Zalman 400-LE, an Asrock A320M-HD, a Ryzen 3 2200g, 8GB of Kingston Hyperx DDR4 and a western digital 480GB green M.2 SSD. Wasn't that cheap, but at least it made sense. Went local for case, keyboard and mouse, and found something good and cheap just by getting a feel on everything.

you can bios mod those LGA 775 boards by adding micro code that will allow for unsupported cpu's as well as mod the socket for fitting a 771 socket cpu and they made those ones all the way up to 4 core 4 thread if you are looking to do that dont even bother with a dell or hp board get a board that has an AMI Bios not a Phoenix Bios, and make sure the board uses regular DDR3 ram and the motherboard should support hyper threading

Hard to believe we are at the 10 year mark since core duo was the current generation. I know i-7s existed back then but they were a different beast. I had my 2009 first gen i-5 as a ancillary machine up until last year. It did a pretty good job, only reason I got rid of it was I built a i-7 8th and moved my i-7 4th into its place.
