Your processor won't be compatible with your mobo choices because your mobo is Socket 939 while your processor is Socket AM2.

Take a look at these:

If you want one of those mobo's, wait until Monday when the prices drop, then you can pick up your 3800 (S939) for cheaper than the AM2 you picked out. OR for roughly the same price you can get a S939 dualcore 3800 Which I recommend you do...

what type of power supply do you suggest that i use. I only did it that way to get a power supple and a case in one. Would getting a seperate power supply be much more expensive? i do not have that much money. What is a good brand one?

I looked at the dual core 3800 and those were a minumum of 255 dollars. That is alot more than the 70 i have planned out lol. I know that they are cheap but what out of these 2 would be better, the one is only 3 more dollars and it has 1 more PCO slots, what does that mean?

I think that i will go with this than instead of the mobo that i listed earlier. It got an average of 5 starts and most of the bad ones were old and the problems have been fixed by then.

By doing this mean that i need to change the ram that i have in the computer also?

i also am thinking to lower the price on the video card alot but by only taking a little performance out of it. The only problem with this is that people say that it is noisy, but i will just turn up the sound or something. is it compatable with everything?

edit : Would this be a better power supply and a better case? it has free shipping lol. would everything fit into it?
