If you plan on upgrading that system with a 8800gts you will most likely need to replace the psu.

Also, Open Office is free so they shouldn't be charging you for it.

What is your budget for your new system? If you are willing to overclock the Intel E2180 has incredible price/performance.

honestly I want to spend around 500...

SLI would be nice...not a must. I would settle for a 8800GTS card...

what would the BEST bargain processor/mobo combo be out there ??

I also need a case/psu/fans ... which are the biggest investment(because they can carry over to my next build)...but don't really do anything for me right now cuz I'm on a budget

I know its best to look @ like a $50 roswell psu and then buy a case or whatnot...but are there ANY cases that come with a reliable PSU ???

I don't really need much more than 120GB storage...

the computer will be used primarily to play AoC

Don't get the X2 4600+

Its a good CPU nonetheless, but the issue is its 90nm, so its temps aren't as good compared to a 65nm

if you want a good AMD CPU, check out an X2 3600+ with a Biostar 780g, which overclock well

and whomever told you that you can't overclock a Gigabyte is a moron... I mean I recommend Gigabyte boards all the time... and those ones are engineered for overclocking
