You should get socket 939 because it is more future proof but if your sticking with 754 get a AMD Athlon 3000+ which is around 60 more bucks (also is the best socket 754 AMD which is saying 754 is old technology) then the sempron 2600+. Then get a 6600GT or 6800GS (I say if your gaming save up around 40 more dollars and get the 6800GS).

Value RAM is fine if your not overclocking.

ok I feel like my system is getting a little unbalanced. I'm going to change the cpu to a Sempron 64 2800+ Palermo and get a little less expensive graphics card than a 6600GT.

What is the best graphics card for around $100-125?

My updated build is in my sig now. I still have some questions though.

one of the reviewers on newegg said that the Foxconn motherboard has problems with Semprons so I might want to use a different motherboard. Any ideas? I want a mobo that is around $50-$75 and is socket 754 and has an AGP 4x/8x slot.

How are these?

Does my power supply look adequate?
