Get a Opteron 165 if you wanna overclock. Everything looks pretty good.

im thinking of using Windows OS Vista and i heard that needs more than 1gb to function quickly. And the CPU i dunno, ill check the opteron 165 but i think the one i picked is good, i checked reviews and apparently its really good to overclock up to 3GHz and temp never goes higher than 45C and my case comes built with 4 fans. so i think i can overclock safely with it.

DC gaming isnt worth it yet....probably won't ever be! Just to let you know, DC only increase fps when the game looks like **** ( ie 800x600 , no aa ,no af). But yes wait for the 7900GTX

Heres a link for the DC results...

Im building in june, so ya summer as well. Wont be as robust of a machine as yours but it will still kick a$$. Waiting for AM2 to drop the 939 price....(omg what a dissapointment that turned out to be though, see the post on AM2 Preview).

Im hoping to build for around a grand. If the price drops even lower i might toss in a second gig of ram or a HSF for the cpu/gpu. Who knows...I just want to play some beautiful games with fps over 60!
