So the CPU and the Mobo must match brand-wise?

How is everything else? and should they both be Intel or go to AMD?

yes the cpu socket needs to match the mobo socket.

the motherboard doesn't have to be AMD/Intel, it needs to support one of those.. they're usually made by 3rd party brands like asus msi, dfi etc.

since you're gaming go with AMD (this is true until conroe is released later this summer, when Intel, most likely, will have the upper hand in the cpu market.. )


edit: also, you should get this video card its cheaper.. it has mail in rebate.

the power supply you chose is weak, get this:

and get a better case, the one you chose is ugly :p

vaderpro, for the sake of upgradeability, i figured he should go with socket AM2. prices are pretty much the same.

and yes, stick with AMD. the 3500+ is MUCH better than the 3.0ghz intel, ESPECIALLY in gaming.
