yes am2 will be good..but i suggest waiting for conroe..im serious listen to me it will blow am2 out of the water...also conroe is sitll going to have 200 dollar processors so u can stil keep ur budget..its coming out pretty soon too..but if not i would do someting like

amd 3200+ or higher am2 $140 (or more if u get a better one)
asus nforce590 sli mobo $200
7900gt $300
2gb dual channel ddr2 800 $200
200gb harddrive $100 (isnt that right?)
500watt PSU (power supply unit) or higher with sli suppport (sli is dual video cards that u can just buy another 7900gt in the future and have a awesome rig)
and a good venitlated case like a...
Antec p-180...$100

that is around $1100

or if u do the 7600gt u save 100 dollars and it still an amazing card..thats just a suggestion by me though lets here some stuff from others...because some people r much better at this then me..hope this helped
