I feel thats WAY too much for a processor, I think the one I picked out is good enough for serious gaming.

Yeah, it is. The 4000+ performs really well. But for real performance... lol...

Dual cores going to be standardized in the future starting in 2006. You'll see AMD make all dual core CPUs which is why I thought you want to get a good start on it.

If you were thinking about going for 1GB, i'd say check out the OCZ EL Platinum DDR400 Dual-Channel Kit, as it has 2-2-2-5 timings and is cheaper than the Corsair equivalent.

I'm not an ex[ert on graphics cards, so i can't speak on that, but you'd be better off with an Athlon 64, if you haven't already got one. Get an Athlon 64 Venice or a San Diego FX if you can afford one.

Okay I have a budget now, im not sure how much I can spend untill Im done picking out all the parts. The mobo must stay, im in love with it. The processor seems a little to pricey but I really like the 4000+, if I can get the same performance on something cheaper I will. I've picked out an 80.00 200gb 7200rpm Harddrive from WD. And I also found 200.00 OCZ 2gb ram. I now need to pickout a graphic card (or two..im not sure what sli means) a floppy, a dvd burner, and I think thats it.
