What are you going to do with it mostly?? That might depend on what RAM and GPU you get... PSU I would maybe go with Antec... good solid and relatively good priced. RAM say 2x512MB corsair valueram, GPU say, maybe a Nvidia 7600? but again... what's your main use going to be?

if you're not going to game, why are you getting a crossfire motherboard?
