What do I think? I think you need a HD, Graphics Card, Case & Optical Drives...

I would get at least a 500W PSU. Great PSU Guide: http://www.techist.com/forums/f76/up...-guide-137927/

Pick up the corsair 520hx from buy.com, 78 bucks after rebate and one of the best psu's you can get.

Depending on your budget, Intel will likely be better.

Looking at your CPU and Motherboard, you could probably go Intel and come out on top.

I'd get the Q6600 (quad core), or the E6750 (dual core) if I were to buy right now. Even AMD's upcoming Phenom processors won't beat Intel's good stuff.

Aren't Phenom processors scheduled to be released on in two weeks? If you're really set on AMD, might want to see what they have in store.
