$175 for athlon is a horrible deal. You can get a far better performing q6600 (2.4ghz stock, reliably oc to 3.6ghz) for $199.99:

P45 motherboard, highest overclocking performance of all chipsets (tie with x38/48) for $99.99:

$175 is far too much for that case, there are better airflow cases for less. Save the money on internal components that add to performance. $160 for 650 watt psu is high, there are 850watt psus available for around $120, or get 550watt units, which is enough, for less than $100. 2gb of ram isn't enough, get 4. Crysis hogs 2+gb alone, Vista use 1+gb, and most other new games use at least 1+gb. Spend $30-40 on a high performance cpu cooler. Save rest for graphics card. :p

Did you even look at the $99.99 motherboard I linked? It use PCIE2.0, just no crossfire, so you can only use one graphics card.

Edit: Ah, I see newegg doesn't list PCIE2.0 there. Nevertheless, p45 boards use it. You can see it here on another retail that does list PCIE2.0 as part of its specs :p

The Antec 900 is a nice case, though you have to be careful with your cabling (it can get a little tight in there).

You can find the 900 for well under $100 - something like 80 or 90.

Good luck on the build.

The power supply is not a good place to try to save money. look at Tom's PSU charts and find a Tier 1 unit in the 750 to 860 range should be Ok for a crossfire set-up.

What!?!?! Are you calling the Antec 900 bad?? I agree $175 is too much, but the Antec 900 can be had for $120 (even cheaper at some other places) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Imo, the Antec 900 is one of THE best cases ever made. That's why people are still buying it.

@OP: Do you plan on OCing? If so get a XIGMATEK S1283. Also if looking for quiet case fans look in to Yate Loon or Scyth.
