i highly recommend that you NOT get the fx5200, it's a piece of garbage, and you'll barely see a performance boost by using it. i recommend getting 1 gig of ram since it's starting to become the standard. i'm not sure what chipset that motherboard uses, but since it has pci-e i suggest you just take advantage of that fact. hard drive isn't important really, looking at your pc, you probably aren't a hardcore gamer. what's your budget?

My budget isn't that high. Maybe around 600-700 dollars. You're right. I just heard from a friend not to get the 5200. Then what should i get?

I'm going to use it for some light gaming and all around school work, like word processing.

EDIT: I decided on a Albatron GeForce 6600 Le. Do you think that's a good choice? I also decided on 1024 MB RAM. Do you think my motherboard is a good choice?

Nevermind everything, I just edited my thread. I saw my previous choices weren't very good. How about these?

i suggest you get 2x512 sticks instead of one 1024 stick, it makes things faster since one stick isn't forced to process everything.

Only if its dual channel will that work kchi55, but yeah, thats true.

Other than that, that computers sweet now.

I'm thinking though since its only going to be used for light gaming and standard school stuff, that that CPU could be scaled down to the 3000+ and could be overlclocked if you wished. That extra money could then be used for something else which may help you.

It doesn't even say what type of core that chips using...
