Looks liek a good motherboard.

I would say buy your parts, just as long as you know you're going to get more parts later on. Other wise, it's a waste of money...

is this a budget computer? becuz if it is i wouldnt recommend that cpu if it was under 700 bucks. athlon 3500 is good enuff these days, board is very popular and dependable and so is the case.

hmmm then ur cpu is good and ur video card is good too. i would suggest the gtx because its still ahead of the game and when its not u can always get another one so ur comp won't be behind the game.

i wouldnt buy anything yet because the prices are always coming down, its better to wait until u have enough money for everything then get it all at once
