Default Want to build a new gaming rig ASAP but.....

I know that I have to wait till conroe comes out even if I'm not gonna buy one, I still wanna see the AMD price drop. But still, if they are the be-all end-all for the moment, how long till we see some decent mobo's for them? I want to have my new rig ordered by the end of July....

oh, and on a side note, what would be the best 2 gigs of ram to get? I'm thinking OCZ Gold EL PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800 CL5-5-5-10 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit W/ Ramsink.... any ideas?

We need a budget

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars

MSI already has some pretty good boards
K9N Neo-F (Nforce 550) (entry level, but still pretty good)
MSI K9N Platinum (Nforce 570) (more for overclocking)
MSI K9N SLI Platinum (Nforce 570 SLI)
MSI K9N Diamond (Nforce 590) (SLI, with PCI-E 16X for BOTH cards, and good overclocking)

and yes, that OCZ RAM is pretty good
