Any suggestions? Is everything compatible with eachother? Anything i might be missing? Would I be better off going with a NVidia 7900 GT for my graphics card? Any feedback would be great.

Well he said he is getting a Conroe which is much better than a 3700 especially in games and multitasking.

i was going with a 4600+ amd and a different sli motherboard by foxconn, but the conroe's are a lot faster and more energy efficient from what I've read. But everything should be compatible and able to play the latest games like oblivion and fear on their highest settings right? If I'm paying about $2000 for a computer build, I want to be able to have some nice graphics.
