Okay, did a little mix and match and this is what I came up with. Still don't know about the processor, and will the HDD combo work well?

Video Card: eVGA 256-P2-N564 Geforce 7900GT KO

Processor: Okay I'm in the dark here still, what's the upside to shelling out the extra $50 for the Opteron 170 Denmark over the Athlon 64 x2 3800+?

Memory: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400
