Dude....wait till July 23rd. Seriously. Wait until the conroe comes out then make your pc. If you don't know what that is, I suggest you ask around because it literally rapes AMD flagship cpus at lower speed and its dirt cheap.

just my 2 cents.
GPU: MSI GTX 260 @ 650MHz/1175MHz
CPU: Intel E6750 @ 3.4GHz/1.33v/60c
HSF: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
SND: Creative Audigy 4
SPK:Logtech X-540s
MOS: Logitech MX600 Wireless Laser
LCD: HANNS-G 28" Widescreen

That power supply can't handle what you want and that motherboard is not very reliable.

What is your budget for the things you are upgrading?

There are no conroe supportin mobos out now (well the Intel Bad Axe Rev 304 is, but for around $250 and hard to find). Just wait w.e you do, even if u want AMD, their prices will drop. Conroe mobos should start appearin soon. ATI Conroe mobos wont be around till august and they'll be under $100 (for RS600 chipset, onboard graphics, doubt theres CF) and around $150 (RD600, CF support). Although if you want CF, 975x mobos support it too, they should start appearin next month along with conroe.

Heres a list of ur conroe mobos:

*Opteron 165 1.8Ghz
*DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D
*HIS Hightech X1900XT 512MB w/ Zalman VF900 (Core: 690Mhz, Mem: 1500Mhz)
*G.Skill 1GB DDR 400
*Kingwin Mutant X Series
*HP IDE Lightscribe DVD Burner
*Seagate Barracuda 80GB SATA II
*Maxtor 80GB IDE
*OCZ Gamexstream 600W PSU
