I would go with the dual core 3800... little more expensive, but worth it... and wait until the end of the month when AMD supposedly drops all their prices on the chips. But the rest looks good!

do you absolutely need/want wireless internet? I would suggest wired, in my personal experience, and those that I know, wireless has been nothing but problematic.

its not that I want wireless, its that I must have it lol there is not other way to get wired to where this computer will be.

but over all will this be a good PC? I am going to wait untill the prices drop before I get it just so you all know, but will this rig be able to play games and all is it a good build?

I would go with either the dual core 3800 or the san diego 3700.

And I would also get the eVGA 7900GT KO superclocked version
