Where are you in the world exactly? Is this in parts or pre-built? At Newegg, the 9600 BE is $139, which is an amazing price, but take into consideration that the 9850 BE is only $30 more. It's much more overclockable, one of the B3 steppings and has higher NB clocks.

I would also go with some 1066 RAM to take advantage of the Phenom's IMC: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220315

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.
