well first of all you can read up some guides on how to build a computer by searching

second of all 2000-2300 is a lot of money, time to have fun

do you OC(overclocking)?
is this for hardcore gaming?
school work?

IF you OC

DFI nF4 ultra-D
X2 4400+
eVGA 7800GTX (actually i think we could fit a 512MB here :P)
2GB el platinum OCZ
74GB raptor
250GB seagate
thermaltake soprano
antec truepower 550W power supply
couple of case fans
NV5 for GTX


X2 4400+
eVGA 7800GTX
2GB valueselect
250GB seagate hdd
thermaltake soprano
antec truepower 500W power supply
couple of case fans

If your a hardcore gamer go with everything in the non OC section and switch the cpu for maybe an X2 3800+ and go for a eVGA 7800GTX 512MB

you guys think x2 4400 is better than the x2 4200? if so, how much better in performance? alot or very little, cuz i can save like 100 - 120 bucks if the performance isnt that huge.
