Exclamation Please help build new pc

Hey hows it going I'm new here and i was just wondering what you guys think about my new PC hardware I'm trying to keep it under $600 but i could probably throw down $650 without power supply, hard drive, CD drive, and sound card.

Video card.
CPU
Memory
Mobo
Case

My goal is to build this and play age of conan on full or close to full settings and not have much lag. If there is anything that you guys would upgrade or change please let me know. Also i only have experience with AMD processors i have never tryed intel so if you guys would rather me go with intel please let me know why also what mobo and processor you would choose. thanks :happy:

Heres some stuff I recommend over what you have

the X2 5000+ Black Edition- it runs cooler and consumes less power and with an unlocked multiplier it easily jumps to 3.2ghz (or you could go Intel)
Crucial Ballistix Tracer- better RAM and has D9 Micron's and is on Newegg for $20 after MIR which is a steal

get this 8800gt:

Newegg.com - PNY VCG88512GXPB GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

and overclock it yourself, factory overclocked cards are used to rip-off people who don't know the magic of ATiTool or RivaTuner
