Hmm, I'll make you a quick-list since I have to go sleep soon..
Opteron 144 S939-170$
PCI-E X800GTO2(Flash it into an X850XT)-180$
DFI Lan-Party-125$
Corsair XMS RAM (1GB)-100$
HDD Seagate 250GB-70$
ASPIRE 500W Power Supply-30$! [email protected]+Rail.
Total=675$ Leaves extra money for other things like a screen or something.

Great system, i would suggest stepping up to a 3700+ for about $30, and spending maybe another $50 on a stronger power supply. But, that will take any of today's games and run bf2 flawlessly. However, AMD's am2 technology is coming out soon, if i were you, i'd probably wait a bit to see if it's worth spending nearly $1000 on a S939 system right now.

I wouldn't get the X800GTO or GTO2. Sure, they're flashable, but they don't support SM3.0. I would reccomend a 6800GS for $20 more. As for CPU, you could drop to a 3200+ and OC that a little more.

EDIT: You could also jump to a 7800GT, along with an extra gig of RAM. That'll bring you to about $850, but it will give you very nice performance.

AM2 is just a new socket, Most AM2 CPU's are just going to be the same Skt939 CPU's

Look what intel did, they made LGA 775, but same CPU's

It is just not woth the time/money

Stay with Socket 939

PS: Socket 939 to Socket AM2 is like Agp4x > Agp 8x it looks good but no preformance diffrances

the way he's says it though it's making it sound like the company advertises it, which might mean it's covered in their warranty

Where are you getting this information from? Even if amd didn't utilize the socket for their 65nm technology they are still going to use ddr2 ram. You don't think that a stock 333mhz htt is going to be a huge improvement in system performance? Imagine what you'll get when you overclock....

Why get a CrossFire mobo when you picked a 7800GT? Just change that to an Ultra-D.
