Re: Will this work? What would you get?
It might be better to go with the x3 CPU if you are willing to try to unlock the fourth core. Many people have had success with it and are getting a much faster quad core CPU for less money. I would recommend the Phenom II X3 720.
Phenom II x3 720 Black Edition
I would go with one of these boards and ram though

Since you are using an AM3 CPU you might as well get the AM3 setup since its only going to cost about $20 more than what you already chose
