Yeah, if you're after the AMD 64 4000+ that is a damned nice Motherboard for it! And a good price!

That is a damned good deal on that Processor! I looked for better, but I only managed to find it at $379.95! Haha, so I have no idea how you found that; but it is cheap as chips as a crazy Englishman once said.

What sort of RAM were you thinking of then?

Damned nice cpu. But for that much... I'd get the fx-57. But, it is $$$. So good choice. Yeah, sli mobo, asus I recommend. two 6800's.... lol. A gig of ram at least... corsair, crucial, giel, viking, or ocz, the best of them, in my opinion, ocz. the hitachi deskstar 500g hd...lol. get two.. 1 T OF STORAGE! YEAH BABY!!! lol... soooo freakin fast. lol... how much do you have to spend?
