Default few questions...

hey guys, i'm almost there to building my new comp... ihave a few questions i want to cover...first of all i'm thinking of going with and amd 64 3500 939 pin. is this a good choice? what is a good mobo to get for it? can i get away with some that is just as good for a little less money? what is the best interface for a HDD? i'll post more on this comp...i've just been realy iffy on the cpu...i'm building this as a budget comp yet good enough to play recent games. also i would like it to be realy upgradeable for the near future!

Arrow AMD Cheap and best

Now if you want to get a cheap and best cpu its amd.
Previously when they started amd cpu's used to generate more heat than intel and they consumes more power now it has been solved and.
So go for AMD

I would go with SATA. It seems to me that they are trying to weed out paralell interfaces and now are going with serial (USB, firewire, SATA). I would also go for the WD Raptor HD if you want speed. I would go with the A8V Deluxe Board from ASUS It has plenty of room for expansion later when you want to.

My Computer:
-UV Reactive Acrylic Mid-Size Case
-Thermaltake 420W
-AMD Athlon XP \"Barton\" 3200+ 400MHz
-Cooler Master Aero7+
-Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe Mobo
-nVidia GeForce FX 5700 128MB
-2x Kingston HyperX 512MB PC3200
-2x 200GB WD 7200 8MB SATA
-2x 12\" UV Cold Cathodes
-5x 80MM 4UV LED Blue UV-Reactive Fans

My Laptop:
P3 750MHz, 512MB, CD-RW/DVD Combo, 15.1\" TFT, 20GB HD, 32MB integrated video
