Given the price, I opted for a single core AMD 3700+ and upgraded the video to a 7900GS. I did pick a cheaper board also to stay within budget.

Don't forget you'd better be looking for a new PSU also... I don't like something that says '15A'
I'd get something like this at least:
Fortron FSP SAGA AX450-PN 450W $66.76 CAD. 29A total max load on the 12V rails should be enough.

Ouch, my build just got trampled by Chozarts =(

You can probably get $170+ for the 7800GS

The 3700+ is a better buy over the 148

If you go with the build Chozart posted you will get a card that is much better, about 1.5x-2x better than your 7800gs

It's a nice CPU. The problem is, if you want to fit it in the budget of $500, you have to make offers.

Did you catch my note about the PSU?
