I will be using this for gaming and for school. The school work is nothing intensive but the gaming will be. Here is goes.

Update ASPIRE X-Superalien w/500Watt PSU
AMD 3000+
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
G.SKill Extream Ram PC4000(2gigs)
eVGA 7900GT KO
Western Digital 250GB HDD
NEC 16X DVD±R DVD Burner
Microsoft Windows XP PRO

Many people on these forums has helped me improve this build. This is a budget build and am trying to get the best for my money. Which is around 1100. Later in the year I plan on adding Thermaltake Bigwater watercooler so I can get the most out of the 3000+. I plan on Overclocking a lot and also the only reason I am going with the 3000+ is because I heard it was a good OC"er and plan on upgrading to AM2 or Conroe next summer when all the bugs are worked out and there are a variety of motherboards and other things are out. But most of all I want to know how all of this will perform at stock and also keep in mind I plan to OC.

If you plan to OC why do you care what it performs like stock? Check the CPU charts.

I would say that PSU is a little bit of an overkill for the CPU, even if you are overclocking.

Have you read about the pentium D 805. It's supposed to be an exeptional overclocker and it has two cores and is cheep.

I believe that someone stated it can be OC'ed to 4.1GHz.

I also recall reading that at that speed the CPU alone consumes 200w.
