Here are two cheap options:

1. Nagasama's build with the 8800GTS 320mb, upgrade to 9 series and a Phenom.

2. e6750 or e2160 (to hold you for a little), with 8800GTS 320mb, upgrade to 9 series, and a Penryn.

ok now what will make my decision is which will be the processor king Phenom and steal the throne for Intel, or will Intel keep the throne while AMD tries to get on

Penryn could possibly be better. They will also be 45nm too.

you got it. i use the xms2 sometimes, but currently i run my HZ's at 1000 5-5-5-15-2T, which is fast enough (lol ITS NEVER FAST ENOUGH). i suggest the HZ because Sora and i decided i got pretty lucky and got D9 xms2...i dont think the ones you get now are garaunteed. the only thing is, i can hit my xms2 with 2.4 and get some deliciously sick timings and clocks. the highest i've tried the HZ is 2.225. i dont wanna burn wm up lol they are so pretty.
oh and i have an audigy (the cheap one with eax3), a coolmax psu (i love it and it is quite stable...look at the overclocks i get heh heh heh...even with my sli....so MEH all you haters lol).
my hsf is a zalman 9500.
plain ol wd caviar 160gb hdd (man i need to get a backup heh).
and a plain LG dvd-rom cd-r.

I think the AF7 is a better bang for your buck, than the Zalmans.
