Seems great although you dont need the ASUS A8N SLI-Deluxe but it will be nice to have.

Get two 76Gig western digital raptors and a OCZ 520W Powerstream power supply.
Those two things are one of the best you can get.
One more thing when you get everything up and runnig can you please report back to us on how it does.

so this motherboard can take everything i need

ASUS A8N SLI-Deluxe AMD Socket 939 nForce4 PCI-Express
http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...732210815&rd=1

so that can hold all this

Athlon 64 FX-55
ATI Radeon X850 XT PE PLATINUM EDITION (PCIE)
OCZ Performance Dual Channel 2GB 2x1GB DDR PC3200
2x Western Digital Raptor 74 GB 10,000 RPM Hard Drive

would that all work out fine?

whats the difference between the 0.13 and the 90 nm? What do they mean and what do they do. Im looking for a 939 socket to go with my new mobo and was told to get 90nm but almost all of them are 0.13 I read somewhere in this thread that the 90nm runs cooler?

yeah, 90nm runs cooler and is considerably faster. for example, the 64bit 3500+ that is 130nm is only very slightly better than the 64bit 3200+ that is 90nm, so yeah, 90nm is better. (0.13 = 130nm, 0.090 = 90nm) so in summary, yes, 90nm is far better than 130nm.

Gaara! If you look at current benchmarks, the P4 570J/3.8 GHZ and the A64 FX-55 are tied.
