Ben, if your going with AMD then great choice on the processor and motherboard. If you have patience I would wait for the 4xxx series ATI video cards. They should be releasing sometime next month (supposedly). If your going with 4GB of memory make sure you have an operating system that can see and use all 4GB.

Good luck with your purchase

I am going with Vista Home Premium 64 bit for the OS

And as for the video card, I had no idea the 4xxx series were coming out now, I haven't followed the computer world since 2xxx series came out haha. Thanks for the heads up, I think I will go with a cheaper card then and get a 4xxx when they come out.

I'd advise against ASUS. The board in my sig is really nice, and very reasonable in price. An overclockers dream with all the little feaures like tabbed jumpers and power buttons on the board. Also x3 Crossfire.

You should know that this chip doesn't go much past 240MHz FSB if that. So in my newbie opinioin, all that NB coolnig is unneccessary.

I'd get the DFI and get aftermarket NB cooling if you end up needing it.

I also personally prefer XP x64. It's less of a resource hog. What's the point of getting 4G of ram, then Vista to read it all, and end up having the same amount available as you would with 32bit XP because Vista is using half of it?

I would have to agree. I have had a subpar experience with ASUS, and the 2 DFI boards I have owned have been nothing short of amazing.

I want to put out the disclaimer that I thought so little of Vista after I installed on the old asus ( notice the lower case letters ), that I really didn't even explore that much. So my opinion is biased and un-educated. It just seemed Mickey Mousey to me. I set my theme to Classic windows anyway.

I would love to be convinced otherwise.
