Well so far i have this towards my new build:
Fortron 400w psu
2x1gb Gskill Ram
2x1gb Crucial Ram (Im either going to use both or sell one)
ATI X1950pro

I need a os, processor, motherboard, and cpu cooler.
I would like to keep it as cheap as possible but i do want to oc my processor.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
Thats the motherboard is it any good or is there something better thats cheaper or is this about as cheap as im going to get?
Newegg.com - Intel Pentium E2180 Allendale 2.0GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail
Im pretty set on this processor

P.S. Should i got for windows vista 32 bit or 64 bit?
