Default Is this a good system for the price?

ABIT KN8 sli mobo

EVGA Nvidia 7900gs ko

2gb of value ram(with heatspreaders)

and an athlon 64 3200

Will this be able to run with a antec true power 3500 watt power supply? And if so can i overclock at all?

Should i go with a faster processor or an x2? Is this a good mid-range setup? And lastly should i wait for r60 and g80 graphics cards?

Thanks

Yes, I think you should go dual core....it's starting to become the standard. The X2 series are good dual cores. Also I think you meant a 350W power supply. You should go for higher if you're looking at R600 and G80. At least 600W+. If you want those graphic cards, get a mid-range card to hold you for now, if you can't wait, like the 7600GT.
