Im gonna assume you have no budget concerns, cause even though these are all VERY VERY nice parts, you could get a system that is only slightly slower for alot less. I mean you could save $125 by going to a 3800+ (socket 939). Do you feel that the FX53 performance is worth $475 more then the Athlon 64 3400+ (socket 754). The top of the line AMD and Intel processors are insanely overpriced in my opinion, for minor performance boosts you have to pay ALOT more.

my total bill for all that was about £2000, not including sound, case, cables etc
processor was a lot more expensive than i hoped but money is no object, i just got a amd64 3400 on my new laptop but i may aswell buy the best that i can get if i can afford it, plus am not paying i'm gettin the money for it, so wether i buy the most expensive or least expensive i'm gettin the exact money for the system

not sure on latency of ram, might get low latency instead but i can only find 2x 512mb rather than 1x 1gb
