For OCing, go with the DFI Lanparty nForce 4 Ultra.

Nice video card.

For your CPU go with the Opteron 144. Doubled L2 cache and OCs at least twice as well as the Athlon 64 equivalent.

Solid memory, but if your OCing your going to need some more powerful Kingston or OCZ at a minimum.

For your HD, go with SATA 150 and a 120GB, unless you think you'll need that much space. I'm just trying to keep it in the same price range since Ultra ATA costs a little less since it's an older technology.

For your PSU, get the Antec Truepower 2 550watt.

check out monarch for the Opty and DFI. I think they have the opty for 134 and the DFI for 115. Also if you don't want to spend 100 or so on the PSU you can get the FSP 450W for 50 at newegg. Great PSU for a great price

I want to get the athlon 64 and I have decided to go with the DFI mobo that Brtnboarder495 recommended.
