everything looks good...


i would wait a week or so for the AMD price drops. you'll save at least $100 on the cpu. the 4400+ is a good choice. it would be a better idea to switch to 2gigs of ram... also, i think you should switch to socket AM2.. pretty much the same price, but you'll be able to upgrade it if you wish when AMD releases their 65nm cores. if you don't ever plan on upgrading, then you can leave it like that since price/performance is pretty much the same. also, if you switch to socket am2, you'll have to switch to DDR2 ram..

If you don't plan to doing extensive gaming, you shouldn't worry about the DX10 compliant cards; they are more geared toward hardcore gamers. On the Conroe question, I think that getting the cheap X6300 ($200) would serve you for a LLLOOOONNNNNGGGGGGG time, but you will need to change your motherboard and memory to DDR2, preferably PC2 6400 from a reliable brand like OCZ.

just get the AMD 4400 x2 mate, it will be perfect for you by the sounds of it.
My 4200 x2 runs everything with ease, nothing seems to "tax" it
