I suggest a Gigabyte K8NNXP-939
they suppot the full 2GHZ FSB also, which a lot of 939 motherboard's lack

even a 3200+ in socket 939 would be much better than a P4 3.2, and that's not even when running 64-bit
when they run 64-bit, they should theoretically double in performance

also, I would reccomend a Seagate 120GB SATA drive instead of WD.
WD are a good brand, and I like them, although I think Seagate are the best for 7200RPM drives

ok, ill get the seagate instead.
also i was thinking bout getting an eVGA card since the BFG is a lil too much. for a motherboard how is an MSI K8TNEO2-F 939, its more in my price range than the Gigabyte one you suggested

Also keep in mind that today (14th) AMD is supposed to have a massive price drop in their amd 64 line and possibly in all of their chips. They are also releasing the FX-55 and 4000+ in the s939 chip.

So if you were holding off on a new cpu waiting for a price drop now might be that time although it might take a day or two for stores to lower the prices.

Edit: Jebathan the BFG 6800 gt is only 405$ (cheapest ive seen so far on Pricewatch).
It's way overpriced at newegg if that is where you looked it up at.

awesome, thnx ya i was looking on Newegg. I'll have to check price watch more often. I was planning on wait a lil bit to get all my parts anyway so I'll wait till they have their price cut, perhaps i can get a better system than expected.

Well, in case you were interested I'm going to be building a new system based around the amd 64 3800 soon as well but going to wait until around christmas. Hopefully a lot of the hardware will be on sale and get better deals.

So if your money doesn't burn a hole in your pocket might be smart to wait until the holiday season rolls around. Not to far off!
