Default My first Build and Im about to Order...

Just take a look and tell me what you think of everything, and If you think I should tweak anything or change anything.
I already have a case,cd/dvd drive, and a Geforce 7600gt Video Card

CPU
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor 2.2GHz Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor Model ADA4200CUBOX - Retail
185$

Ram
OCZ Gold Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ26671024ELGEGXT-K - OEM
120$

PSU
Rosewill RP550-2 ATX 2.01 550W Power Supply - Retail
67$

Motherboard
BIOSTAR TForce 6100 AM2 Socket AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX RoHs compliant AMD Motherboard - Retail
75$

Harddrive
Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3160811AS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
57$

All the parts that I listed besides the ones I already have need to total 500$, no more. I was gonna go with the 3800+ x2 and go with a better motherboard that does SLI , but I kinda decided against it, so If anybodys has got any advice or just suggestions please tell me. Thanks

You're not getting an SLI ready board? Ah, well. That will get the job done for your budget I guess. I would check and make sure that RAM will work on that board because I know some people with ASUS boards had trouble with it. Just a suggestion.

Well thats what I was wondering, if I go with a SLI board ill have to downgrade my CPU from AMD 4200+ x2 to a 3800+ x2, If you think its a worthy trade to get a SLO board then Ill go with that.

EDIT: or If I could find a 10$ cheaper PSU then I could go with the SLI board also with the 4200+. As you could probably tell im on a reallll tight budget, lol.

It is worthy trade in. Theres not much diff between the 4200 and 3800.
