looks good to me but i would get a cheaper DFI motherboard which are just as good for overclocking and get a better graphics card such as a 7800gtx or a gt

maybe, I would like to keep it under $1000, but yea, dropping the fatal1ty and getting the dfi would prolly allow me to get a 7800GT, they're a bit pricey.

7600's suck because they have so little amound of pipelines (12)

My AGP card has more than that and the core is slower than mine XD

I would get 2 gigs of ram, only because if you read the reviews on these sticks you would see why. If you plan on playing Fear Maxxed out in graphics, and even games such as Dungeons and Dragons Online etc. Seriouslly, I have a gig of pc3200, and I'm seriouslly thinking about getting the the 2 gigs of Corsair.

Yeah I would recommend at least a BFG Vid Card, life time warranty, can't beat that. And if you are buying a video card, you might as well spend a little extra money and save yourself from having to replace the card you buy.
