Get the clawhammer core Athlon 64 3200+ instead of the one you've got. It has a 1MB L2 cache at the expense of 200MHz on the clock speed. Believe me, you will need that extra L2 cache more than you will need that extra 200MHz. Its the same price at Also, I don't see a graphics card listed. With your other parts, I suggest you get at least the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro if not the X800.
