Update: After going over my plans again, I'm starting to wonder if my 3500+ will suffice for more serious gaming. Should I upgrade my processior? Also, I've given up on the idea of using an SLI Motherboard, so I need a recommendation again. Finally, I'm having a hard time deciding on a new graphics card and set of RAM sticks. (I'm thinking 7800 GT at the moment. Haven't a clue about RAM.)

grab an opty and OC it way past a 3500+ (a 148 will hit 2.75GHz easy)

Antec is sweet for PSUs
Aspire is a niiiice case

Snag some G.SKILL ram.
