check some of the other threads ;]

for cpus, go amdx2 brisbane. motherboard, biostar is great. ram, crucial ballistix are the best bang for your buck atm. HD, i'd say seagate 320gb is at the right price. video card, geforce 7900.

antec 900
corasir hx 620W
gigabyte p35 ds3r
q6600 + tuniq tower
seagate 320gb
evga 8800gts 640mb

For AMD get a ATI 690G motherboard or Nvdia 7000 motherboard. As for CPU, get the 3600+. tiger direct has a sale now Fx-62 for 170$. AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 2.80GHz 2MB Cache 1000MHz (2000 MTs) FSB Windsor Dual Core OEM Socket AM2 Processor ADAFX62IAA6CS at

the intergrated video wont be the best for gaming, but good enough for half life, counter strike, battlefield less demanding games.
