for the processor at least Athlon XP2 3800+ or higher depends on ur budget.

for the mobo just dont buy cheap brands such as biostar,ECS,Asrock,etc

Abit, MSI, Gigabyte, Asus is the best for overclockers.
Since u plan to buy a graphic card, dont buy mobos with 6100chipset .
Get a mobo with at least 550 or higher such as 570,570 Ultra, and 590.
550chipset should do the job, i prefer Abit , just dunno why.

ah nice well form the looks of it for a complete and better system you will need more ram regardless. so all in all its about how much money you can spend. if you dont have the money for the inflated am2 prices a 939 sytem can still last you two or three more years. get a x2 or an opteron maybe a 3800(x2) or a 165(opteron) both inexpensive and overclock like crazy. then get another stick of ram to give you a total of 1 gig. that would be significant improvement and inexpensive. just let me know your price range and we can work from there...

go for 1Gb ddr2 667... its good enough,better yet 1Gb ddr2 800 depends on ur budget. This is my suggestion :-
processor = X2 3800+
mobo = Abit KN9 Ultra
ram = at least 1GB DDR2 667
harddrive = WD 160GB
