Do you think you can afford this combo:

BIOSTAR TFORCE 550 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 550 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard $79.99
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 $61.99

Much better option. Dual core, and should overclock beyond 3.0GHz.

This is a cheaper, and better, PSU:

And do get DDR2 667, since there is no price difference. This is a pretty decent kit:

and for not much more, here's a kit that runs at CAS4:
