I'd say the same cpu, but this mobo instead Mobo
and then get 2gb dual channel like this ram
I was kinda lazy on the ram, might find a better 2x 2gb setup w/ lower latancy if you look around.

might try dropping the board down to the K8N SLiK8N SLi
Just try to fit everything into your budget.

Im guessing he wants to do some overclocking as he wants low latency RAM. If so, why would he want an Abit board when he can get a DFI one which are much better for overclocking?

i would say to not get an SLi motherboard, theres a whole sticky about SLi and how it has a bad priceerformance ratio.. check it out. i think one 7800GTX would be good enough.
