are you set on AMD?
if not then a better choice would be the
P35-DS3R motherboard with a
e6750 processor

This PS is nearly the same price but it is ultra: dabs.com - Corsair Memory 620 Watt, ATX, EPS12V, PS/2, (CMPSU-620HXUK)

Hard Drive: dabs.com - Samsung T133 400GB S300 7200RPM 16MB (HD401LJ)

CASE: Your opinion but i like for good value: dabs.com - CoolerMaster Centurion 5 Black/Silver Case (CAC-T05-UW)

looks cool: dabs.com - Antec Nine Hundred/Ultimate Gamer Case no PSU (NINE HUNDRED EU)

looks classy: dabs.com - Antec P182 Advanced Super Mid Tower - No PSU Black (P182 BLACK)

EDIT: Wow that mobo is expensive. Get this mobo/processor instead and OC it.

dabs.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 S775 2.33ghz 4mb Cache 1333FSB (BX80557E6550)

dabs.com - Gigabyte S775 Intel P35 Express ATX DDR2 Auio Lan (GA-P35-DS4)

Not really set on AMD, just have always used amd, and Im very familiar with overclocking them etc.
Hard drive ill have to decide myself when I look at how much storage space I need.

right now the e6750 would perform better in games, but future ones will be quad-core using, so q6600 would perform better then

Mfr#:P5W64 WS PRO &#163;147.80

Intel Quad Core Q6600 2.4GHz S775

That mobo is overpriced. I would sugest the P35-DS3R but **** dabs dont even sell it. This is cheaper and would own that 975X board.

The intel setup would probably perform better in most things including gaming, especially when overclocked, looking at the 6000+ you'll be lucky to get an extra 300Mhz out of it. If you're looking for the best performance for your money, definitely go intel
