Heres what im thinking of ordering now that i have read over these formus a little more

DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra

Thermaltake Armor Series

SAMSUNG 16X DVD±R DVD Burner With 5X DVD-RAM Write and LightScribe Black ATA/ATAPI

LITE-ON Black IDE DVD-ROM Drive

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200KS 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

OCZ Gold GX 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)

Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2

Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 ATX12V 550W Power Supply

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester 1GHz HT Socket 939 Dual Core Processor

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic

Evga 7900GTX PCI-e GPU

My real question is this will be my first computer build and i dont know for sure if everything will be compatible. Like for example the Mob says amd 64fx/amd64 CPUs... i picked out a amd 64 x2... dont know if that will work out or not. If someone could look over what i got and tell me if it will work together or not or if they want to offer any opinions on other items (different) items i should pick up. let me know!

Thanks!

Well if you can afford it get the opty 170. Also you might want to buy some as5, and a aftermarket cooler such as the Scythe Ninja combined with a 120mm Fan will keep that cpu very cool at high oc's.
