perfect pc right there, looking around 800-900 on that build depending on what you go with. assuming you already have drives and such.

and should I go with the DC or SC version of the am2 3800+?

DC
$159.99
2.0GHz
L1 Cache: 128KB+128KB
L2 Cache: 2 x 512KB

SC
$109.00
2.4GHz
L1 Cache: 64KB+64KB
L2 Cache: 512KB

I guess what im asking is, is it worth the extra 50.
