Thanks for the idea, but I think the x3 is plenty enough. I'm moving to a town like 6 hours north, so I won't be around to play repair man if something breaks. The more foolproof it is, the better.

The Athlon II X3 is faster than the Phenom II X2 in games and normal applications anyway, so it shouldn't matter.

My recommendations on what to change:
Motherboard - Gigabyte 760G AM3+ socket board. Around same price, and features AM3+ expandability in case you ever decide to go, say, FX-series quad or hexa core in near future. Same price anyway for the black socket, and the board is newer release, so why not?
Video card - Sapphire HD 5830 for $110. Great card for the price, it should be neck in neck with the GTX 460 or so.
Case -

is IMO a much better case choice for ~$35, shipped. Great options for cable management & bottom PSU, black interior, good cooling layout
DVD drive - LG 22X for $20 shipped. Another 22X drive for $20... then $6 shipping on top, I think is too much

I wouldn't do the am3+ without the 9xx chipsets.

I was looking around and found that 5830. First thought: hey, that's a great price!
Speaking of which I really should post that to online deals also...
