Thanks for your help, everyone. I deciede to take your advice, and found out that newegg is the best deal for everything. Here is the link to my wishlist. I hope the link works.

https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...le=MONKEY+POOP

I know, I know. I forgot the thermal compound. I will get some when I check out.

It'll be a few weeks before I get to buy it, so feel free to make suggestions on how to save some more money. You guys have been very helpful so far.

It won't save you money now but a better PS could save you money later!
Some possible consideration... best for the buck...

Thanks, Duke. Someone else recommended that power supply, but I did have my sights set on a 500w, so now I'm going with you're suggestion. It got great reviews, so I'll give it a shot.

They didn't by chance change the hookup for the IDE hard drives, did they? I have 2, don't want to buy another, and I don't need any surprises.

BTW, would anyone suggest that I buy some of these items open box? I think it would save some $$, but I don't feel too good about it.

Athlon 64 can be nice if you get a high clock.

See, now you guys lost me. I don't know what you mean by "high clock". If I get the X2 3800+, you guys are going to have to walk me through the setup process (and all the over clocking mumbo jumbo.. All I know how to do is hook it up and install the drivers. I hope you guys can be patient for my lack of knowledge.

Better yet, we can help you by helping you help yourself. As the maxim goes, "It's one thing to give a hungry man a fish; it's an altogether greater thing to teach him how to fish."

It's not that I personally don't want to dole out advice, because I can honestly say that I do when I'm qualified to do so. But to be perfectly frank, you'll feel so much better if you learn as much about overclocking as you possibly can; you'll feel more confident about the changes in settings that you make, and you'll understand how things work, more or less. That's the whole point of the hobby (for me, anyway).

So, to help you on your journey into the dark world of overclocking, I would suggest reading some of the stickies here. There are overclocking guides in both AMD and Intel flavor, but if you're going with AMD, may I recommend this as your introductory primer into the dark art?

Good luck, and we'll be here should you have any questions once you get stuck in.

i would have recommended the 3600+ Brisbane but Newegg says it is out of stock!!

all these components, to me, seem like the best for the least amount of money. you could prolly spend less- but the resulting system may not last very long, i included an 8000 series gfx card since they are capable of offloading DVD and HD video content off of the CPU allowing me to include a super budget cpu and so you can throw any kind of movie at this without worrying about lag -- even with HD. but if you dont plan on watching HD material then i would suggest going for a much lower price 7000 series card. and the dvd burner ive seen reviewed-- and its definitely best bang for your buck.

edit:what the hell-- now it says that the 3600+ is not out of stock. well i recommend this guy if you can fork over the extra moola-- like i said depending on if you are gonna watch HD stuff should influence what gfx card to get-- if your tight on cash you could get this and skimp on the gfx card-- i would prolly.
