I don't think that mobo has full support for dual core cpus, you need the next model up, the A8N-SLI-DELUXE. but i could be wrong. other than that it should be fast!!

That's a nice upgrade from what you have now. I never heard of the 7600, but it looks good. I can't believe how nvidia is releasing chipsets like crazy. They're are really diluting the market for video cards. Go for it.

1. The 4200+ is a complete waste of money. Its only 200mhz faster than a 3800+ which is significantly cheaper. 2. To make up for the 200 mhz lost, just raise the FSB a mere 20mhz and you will have 2.2Ghz. (220x10) A novice overclocker can even do this. 3. It will also give you higher performance due to higher memory bandwidth. That is why i said get a 3800+ instead.
