Re: new to building computers
if you are going to go with a AMD processor i suggest getting the AMD phenom II 965 black edition, its not a lot more and it is considerably more powerful. but if you arnt hard set on getting an AMD chip id suggest an intel, they are more expensive but you really do get what you pay for from intel. Intel i7 920 and 930 are both great processors.
what games do you plan on playing? and what is your budget?
