New build, advice needed.

Hello there, I'm new to the forums, though I've been using THG as a reference for nearly 2 years now. Anyway, I'm putting together a new system, just to improve on my laptop (horrible for gaming purposes), until October 6, 2009 (My birthday, shall "inherit" a fairly decent sum of money). Heres what I've got so far, I'm going for under $500, but if I can get a larger performance increase for a little more, I'll do that. I'm planning on going AMD this time, to do what little I can to support competition (not a fanboy, actually never owned an AMD processor). Tell me what you think, thanks in advance. ;)

Please tell me if I've forgotten anything, last build I forgot to order the cooler and paste. -_-
I will be overclocking of course.

Edit : Oops.... looks like I screwed up, posted this in the wrong section, sorry about that :( I gotta remember to read the stickies.

  1. I picked up the 5000+ BE & Tforce for the same reason.

    If you can, try & get a retail cpu with 3 years warranty. OEM usually comes with 9 months tops. Retail comes with a cooler. Can be used for light to mild overclocking.

    ASUS M2A-VM HDMI would be a better overclocker.
