May i recommend you move this post to the high end computing? they are really good at what you are trying to do... I would go for the AMD 3800+ and OC w/ that nice aftermarket HS+F, u wont notice much of a difference. take the extra money and get a 7800GT or 7900GT. the extra money on the graphix card will make a huge difference

I'd recommend a different PSU and graphics card. The Antec Truepower II 550W is a nice power supply. The eVGA 7900GT KO is a more powerful graphics card, and it has a nice heatsink as well.

I don't think Newegg ships to Europe, but I thought I'd link there anyway.

The High-end forum is just another section on this site, it's right below this one on the main page.
