Motherboards good, keep that. RAM, you really want to start looking at 2GB especially with Vista around the corner, and Beta 2 for public trial. Now the CPU, dual core is the future. With K8L being released sometime in the future and being able to be dropped into the PC with a BIOS flash, go for that on release.
