I need some help making my new computer, it will be for gaming and i need to build an all new computer, and the games i will be playing the most is Everquest2 and various FPS games
I have right now about $900 dollers and i live in Canada (What is a good Canadian site to order parts from?)
so i would like to know what graphics card, cpu,motherboard,ram to get and i
am clueless on where to begin. Whatever i get will be a good upgrade from my current amd2500, 1 gig and 9600 pro overcloked.
so i really need some suggestions on where to start with my current budget.
i am thinking maybe a 7900 for graphics card unless there is a better alternative i also have no current clue on what cpu to get
so here is the early build of what i am thinking of getting please let me know if there is problem or better ways to get comparable results because i am on a budget.

I'll start by saying, and I know jeff recommended a good board instead, but your original board is an AM2 board which means it's for AMD not Intel. Do what jeff said and get the MSI board. Oh oops didn't see jeff's edit about the AM2 8O .
Excellent choice of CPU and RAM. Wait until April if you can. Intel is supposed to have price cuts, WOO!!!!
With the graphics, you may want to buy a midrange card like the 7600GT or X1650pro/XT. ATi is coming out with their new cards "soon" which means price drops and the release of NVidia's mid range. You will be able to get a better card that is future proof for the same amount of money.
PSU wise, something around 550 Watts should be plenty for you. FSP and Thermaltake are highly recommended. Try some of these:
Are you ever planning on going SLi? If not then there is no reason to by an nforce board. You could probably find an Intel 965 or 975 board for less or at the very least by a new nforce 6 board. the 5 series were plagued with problems. Otherwise it looks like a good system.
