I think I might get a single core 3700+ because it has better performance in gaming are which is pretty muchall I will be doing.
What are you comparing this to...if its a dual core then you are way off but if you are comparing it to other single cores then this is the best price to performance ratio w/ stock speed. But if you really want to get the most out of you dollar you should look at the opteron 148. the 148 is only like 20 or 30 bucks more but you could clock that to past fx-57 speeds with that ddr500 ram i suggested a while ago. i think that it would be roughly 1225 but i could be a bit off on that, doing this post quickly :cyclopes:
I also haven't really heard anythin about that brand of powersupply and rule of thumb on PSU's is to go with a good brand. While this is not always the case it usually is. Cheaping out on the power supply could hurt your chances of overclocking well i believe.
Also, you dont need a sick keyboard...or mouse for that matter. I have some $20 microsoft black optical mouse and i can PWN in cod2 with it just as well as with some laser mouse made by diamondback. If you did get some speakers you wouldn't really notice a difference because you are sticking with onboard sound. While a nice subwoofer does intensify most situations, it isn't the be all end all of audio. I would say that a good sound card is more important than a good set of speakers.
As for cables, i dont really know that much about those. One idea that i am thinking of doing is buying that ocz 520W modstream PSU... the idea behind that is to keep my wires as neat as possible for good air flow using the modular wiring that the ocz psu has.
Other than that, i would say that it is a great build.
