Agreed!

Core 2 is the way to go - those AMD processors are old news...

Looks alright if you're goin with AMD. I would get a different mobo though, you don't need to spend extra money on a SLI board if you aren't gonna use it. Then with the extra money, you should get a better case, that case you have there doesn't look to be of good quality.

i have the same psu....
it works fine for me. i don't know what the power consumption is on the e6300 is, tho.
read tri-eclipse's post on power supplies, it will help you make a wise decision.
also, and i may be wrong here...
with ddr2 isn't it better to have 2 matching sticks? (or you won't get dual channel?) or something...?

I read alittle bit of it i think i should be fine its the video card im worried about icause it said it has pretty high power consumption and i cant have anyless than a 430 watt power supply so i went with 500w so i should be safe but i definatly need to check more on consumption.
