Wow thanks for all that help; however i have done a little research and i do believe that this would be a better motherboard. But what is better for gaming? Intel or AMD? Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe WiFi-AP Motherboard - AMD 790FX, Socket AM2+, ATX, Audio, PCI Express 2.0, CrossFireX Ready, WiFi, Gigabit LAN, SPDIF, USB 2.0, Firewire, eSATA, RAID M3A32-MVP-DEL-WF at

Intel seems to be pulling away, but everybody has their opinion.

Wait for the new Quad cores coming out soon if you are just looking around at the moment. If u want something now go with the E8400 or the Q6600. Both overclock very well, especially if you go for a good heatsink like the Tuniq Tower.

The 8800 GTS (G92) is an amazing card for the money. I believe it's in the top 3 on all of the benchmarks I have seen (for gaming that is.) I just got one with my new build last week and it runs Crysis on Very High settings at around 25-30 FPS. It absolutely demolishes everything else.

I have yet to OC my Q6600, but I don't really see the point right now considering it's handling everything I throw at it without any issues at all.

this is what I'd recommend for $1,000 because, its a common budget these days:

Abit IP35-e
8800gt (or hd3870)
Corsair 520hx
Crucial Ballistix 2gb Kit
Tuniq Tower 120 (people here complain about noise, but as I've never used one I wouldn't know, but you can always get another quite, but powerful one to replace the original)
add: Hard Drive, Case and Optical Drives that you like

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
