Alright next build happening mid next month. Yes it's dual core but i like AMD and am not confident with their quad-core at the moment so i will wait for the second batch before going quad-core. I might not buy the CPU just because of the plan to buy quad-core in the future and i already have an AM2 CPU.

Anything you guys think I should double check or maybe get something else? I'm pretty sure everything is compatible, but hey mistakes happen.

By mid next month. Nforce 7xx am2+ boards with pci-e 2.0 should be out as well as ati / amd boards with sb 7XX
also don't get a board with on board USB based wifi get a pci or pci-e card for that.

The PSU you chose is great in the looks department but it is only backed by a 3 years parts and 1 year labor warranty. I would look at the SeaSonic M12 SS-700HM. SeaSonic makes some nice PSUs and this one backed by a 5 year parts and 5 year labor warranty. It costs $10 more but has free shipping.

SeaSonic M12 SS-700HM $179.99 + FREE SHIPPING

Also consider a 4 GB kit (2x2gb) for easy upgrade to 8 GB.
