It depends, do you have any other components from previous computers or builds, or will you be needing every single component to be purchased.

I just need the computer, i have everything else (as in keyboard and monitor and mouse) I want to use AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 but if there is better cpu, i'll go with that.
I also want to use a A8N-SLI Deluxe with it. Is that good?

EDIT: I already have an OS

yes 3800+ x2 is a good entry level dual core processor

you can get a 6600GT to a 6800GS and 1 GB ram for 1k

ofcourse that includes everything in the tower

if you're getting 6600GT or 6800GS remember to go with eVGA if you can

Nah, i would go with the 3700+ or an opty and go with a 7800GT and if you can afford it 2GB's of ram. if you want to OC a lot then defintely go with a DFI mobo. Not big of an OC'er but still want to try MSI is the way to go. Asus doesnt fit anywhere and gigabyte are good boards also
