Looks good cept for one thing. I HIGHLY recommend you go for the socket 939 3000 64 because in the future you could upgrade to a much better cpu or a dual cpu that goes into 1 939 socket.
If you ever have any questions feel free to email me at, I will send you back an email as soon as possible.

I'd stick with the 754. It's upgradable up to a 3700+ I believe. You'll save money, and by the time this computer actually begins to go out of date, you'll have money to replace the mobo AND processor.

System Specs:
Intel Q6600 @ 3200 1.4v
Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"
2x2gb A-Data @ 800
Diamond HD 3870 512mb

Great FORD TRUCK resource:
