ok, so for AMD mobo, i suggest the GA-M59SLI-S5, it is SLi ready and capable...

for a cpu - > minimum - ADA4800CSBOX X2 4800+ Processor...

gpu - nvidia 7900GT or 7950GTX - or if you want to SLi, 2 x 7600GT XXX edition (budget friendly) or 2 x 7900GT's (not-so-budget friendly).

memory - 2 x 1GB Corsair DDR2 800mhz

psu - a minimum of 700W or alternatively, you can get a smaller psu but then get a dedicated gpu psu from thermaltake, http://www.thermaltake.com/product/P...0130/w0130.asp

case - that's entirely up to you...

hope this helps...

for sure, but the only prob with that is, you can't go and get a mobo if you don't have a cpu to go with it... and then ofcourse the pci-e gpu slot as well, and the ram (ddr2) too...
