I would suggest the same motherboard PZEROFGH suggested.

My question is why AGP when you can have PCI-E? Yes there is a price difference(I'm not stupid) but it isn't much. Except you get twice the performance.

Seagate HDs
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=1197385
(browse through them, they offer all seagate HDs at pretty low prices)

I haven't used SATA HDs, so I can't recommend any for you.

CPU:
If you are crazy-rich: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...=MX64-AMD-4800
If you are on a budget:

There are some nice GSkills over at newegg on sale for around $100, timings are 2-3-3-6 I believe.
