Post New Rig Build

I have killed my last budget and made it lower, 1 because im saving up for a car now and 2 because i changed my mind on the gaming side. Well here is what i got so far, my budget is around 450-500 just for the 4 main parts.

Cpu

Ram

Mobo

Video

I have the monitor/keyboard/mouse/case/ide hdd.
Im in the blue right now with the am2 mobos i need some help on that and it would be great for someone to link me some mobos that would be good for average user no overclocking, just stable. Also i would need a psu. Thanks for any help.

Von

I agree with the ASUS. The NVidia video card is a much better pick as well..
