I have come up with a list of parts for my new rig and just wanted some input or suggestions on what I should change or upgrade. I havent overclocked much before and wanted a machine mainly for gaming. Based on most people and reviews I have managed to end up with this.

CPU- AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego ($334)
Motherboard- DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR ($200)
Video card- eVGA Geforce 7800GT 256MB ($314)
RAM- OCZ PC3200 DDR400 2GB(2x1GB) Platinum ($240)
Power Supply- OCZ PowerStream 520W ($140)
Soundcard-Creative SB X-Fi XtremeMusic ($115)
Case- COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 ($85)

I planned on spending anywhere from $1500-$2000. Will be upgrading to 2 7800's later. Still need a cooling system. So any input or suggestions anyone has are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

pretty sweet but drop the SD 4000 and get the SD 3700 and with the money you save get a big typhoon, seeing as the SD3700 Ocs just as high as the SD4000 in almost every case. Or you could get a Opteron 148 (same clocks and cache as the SD 3700) which can (if you get a good stepping) can reach 3Ghz on air. you won't likely get a good stepping but even teh bad ones do 2.8ghz on air. Personally I wouldn't get that OCZ Psu either, there performance is begin to slip. I'd suggest an Antec or Seasonic S12 600W (Scored really well in the PSU round up
