Default 3 more parts

I have gotten everything for my PC except for the most important parts, cpu, mobo, and video card.

Currently I am looking into,

amd64 3000+ 939
Abit AV8

Not sure about the graphics card, can anyone suggest for $100-150?

i'd say scrap the weak amd and get a p4 abit mobo so you can get a good pci-express graphics card for that price range

By the way, my Kingston HyperX 3200 512 mb was 80 bucks, is that a good deal?

Um if you are gaming, it would be smart to get an AMD like what you have selected since they do much better in gaming. And for the video card... hmm... I'm not sure, most video cards under $150 are fairly old technology.
