Most will recommend a core 2 duo.

I recommend anything over the 5200+, its still decent but just the more CPU power the better

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Windsor 2.8GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail

Also you want Vista to go with your Direct x 10 videocard.

There are better Power supplies out there for the price of the one you listed.

Take a look at the PSU guide linked in my signature.. For other brand choices....

Don't get AMD

The price of E6600 has dropped down
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

E6600 can kick the *** of 5600+ and it consumes less power
