Thanks.

All looks good to me at the moment but my only concern is whether or not that motherboard will properly recognize the new phenom processors. You might have to do a BIOS update. Maybe someone else can confirm that.

And also, you shouldn't need too big of a power supply to run it.

I'd suggest a MSI K9N Diamond, it's a 590 chipset. And better then the M2N SLi. If you're an asus fanboy get the crosshair. Also, that GPU is gona bottle neck. Get this.

XFX 8800GT

Don't bother with the better graphics card unless you're gaming. You might want something a little better though, even just like an 8500GT:

$50 after mail in rebate

8 gigs of RAM? What are you doing with this computer? If you're doing anything besides THE MOST hardcore video editing or CAD, that's just a waste of money. Get 4 gigs of DDR2-1000 faster RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231145

I'd also recommend this PSU:

I was going with that ram, becasue if you bought the mobo I was looking at and that RAM together it was 100 dollars off.

Wow I was just thinking you're a hardcore gamer (8GB Ram) So I reccomended the 8800GT. Plus it looks like you have an unlimited budget.
