Ditch the AM2. In your price range it's probably the worst investment you could make. If you had been going for a lower end system then yes it would make some sense.

For the price of the X2 5000+ you can get a Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4Ghz. Which is faster under ALL games and under 99.9% of applications.

As for the motherboard you could opt for an Asus P5W-DH Deluxe which is based on the Intel 975x chipset supporting Crossfire (no reason in getting an SLI motherboard when a Crossfire motherboard would make much more sense for your video card).

Memory is perfect for a Core 2 Duo rig. If you had stuck with the AM2 rig PC2 6400 would have been needed in order to keep up with the older socket 939 platform's PC 3200.

If you have questions ask away.. I'll gladly help.

Agree with ElmoisEvil. Dont know why folks still go with am2 with a good budget... 8O

You might wait for the X1950 XTXs to come out - the X1900XT's will be price-slashed...
