well since its a budget build u could always go for a cheaper mobo if u want to save some money. I payed like 60e for my mobo and I have been happy with it.
But the mobo u chose is definitely good, just a little expensive for a budget build.

No need to go AM2 yet. Socket 939 is very affordable and performance is just as good.

My thoughts exactly after looking a few up , although its still a pretty good option...

I've also found a few benchmarks for the 7300 GT and its looking like a good budget card.I won't need it that long anyways I'm getting a DX 10 card...

Umm....I've found some different stuff that I think would be better tell me what you guys think

Motherboard : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128321

Processor : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103633

Ram : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141065

The Ram isnt the greatest but they will probably upgrade that soon they just need something cheap to start off with...
