I was and did, a HD3870 is not all that far ahead of my current proc, dont worry a new proc is next on the list, and that mobo I posted will support much more then this one.

E2180 + DFI Dark P35 + 4GB RAM = about $300, and the 7950GT is still fine for most games. Then, when the 48xx and GTX2xx cards come out, you can get some more money saved up, and buy something then. DX10 is still a waste, and the 7950 is one of the better DX9 cards. Plus, the DFI Dark is one of the best mobos out there, with PCI-E 2.0, and OCs Quads great, meaning it can stay with you for a few future upgrades, though future-proofing in general is silly, IMHO.

I would get DDR2 800 RAM which is the standard for the DFI board.

There's a lot of people that run that RAM here, haven't seen anyone hate it.

And the E7200 is a great processor. I've seen it hit 4.0ghz on air.

Yeah thanks for feed back on proc ImmortalKenny, you have been a big help. I was looking at that ram, but it really kills me to go to much above $300. In my mind I would rather have 3 gig at 667 then 2 gig at 800.
EDIT: So here is what I got,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227078 ram.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136043 mobo.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115052 processor.
Any objections?
