I know you will probably be annoyed by this, but I think you should spend about $70 more than the 7900GT and get a connect3D 3056 Radeon X1900XT. It really seems worth it, but you have to make sure you get a good enough PSU to run it, and it is a little big, so a larger midtower wouldn't hurt.

I personally went with AM2 on my new build, getting a Athlon 64 X2 4600+, capable of overclocking to 5000+ speeds on stock cooling (or so I've been told).

I can't help you on the RAM man, I had to go with this after I switched to AM2.

As for a motherboard, I like the DFI INFINITY NF ULTRAII-M2 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra, and I am using it in my build. It of course has on board sound, and is pretty cheap considering what you get for that price.

That processor I was talking about is this.

You'll need a good PSU if you are going to get all of those mid-high end parts, and I personally suggest This one.

Here\'s a quote I saw once on a /b/ forum a while back, I think it\'s funny:

I\'ve been thinking of \"Heck\" lately. If it even exists, it\'s got to be a much nicer place than \"Heaven\". I mean... all the gay men are down there. You KNOW it\'s well decorated.

Note that I do not in any way condone homophobia or am in any way homophobic. I merely thought that it was clever.
