Default Dual Core Rig im building need help

Well im getting a an X2 +3800 a barebone with an Asus A8V-E SE(dont wanna go for SLI) with a mid tower 420 Watt supply searched and found a price for 520dlls what you guys think??

I need good prices:
-Still need RAM going for 1 gig at least still dont know if i want to go for a brand ive always used generic it hasent caused any troubles i just really want to know if its worth it.
-HD 100 gig maybe more dont need over that much(dunno why ppl get 400 gig sometimes they will never fill them up )
-Video Card i think im going for a 6800GT they say the 6800 series has a lot of heating issues which is the brand that heats less to the video card.

OMG, the 7800GT is a whole other level. Get that instead of the 6800's. You will need a minimum 450watt power supply to run it.

I actually have that ram too, its good stuff. The 7800gt is great if you could afford that over a 6800 you willln't regret it. Although then you would need a new powersupply and that would add even more on to the cost. But if you cant afford that then the 6800gs or 6800gt will be fine.
