Go with Intel Core 2 Duo and the motherboards that'll soon come out for it. You can get quite a bit more performance for less money.

will that RAM work with the Motherboard I will be getting? I belive that I need DDR2 RAM and that link is DDR Ram.

So is the build good? I do plan to wait for the price drops, but is this a good build or is it crap or what?

thanks

it is a pretty good build, if you can I would go with the 7900gt instead. But that all depends on your budget.

other than that ya it is a good build.

well that case dosent really fit my at all I was looking for a silver or black case with good airflow. and dose anyone know about what RAM I should get? and just wondering where are the prices schedualed to drop on the 3800 X2's? and what is it schedualed to drop to? because I will probibly get it as soon as they drop. but right now my main concern is the case and RAM.


thanks

Hey everyone I was just looking at newegg and do you guys think this kind of RAM would work well with the ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForxce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard? if so I guess that would work its $$$$$ but if its worth it then I will get it, and just wondering where are the prices schedualed to drop? and I am still looking for a case.

thanks
