As a little side note, it would be nice if the total price for all three could be kept below about 300$

Thanks for your help guys.

  1. What will be the main usage of the PC ?
    And that CPU is good but going with AM3 would be better...

    Anyways for that CPU, I would suggest atleast this board and RAM...Would come to $315 but is worth it...

  2. If it will be gor gamng, I would suggest you change the CPU to X3 720 and go for a better AM3 board and DDR3 RAM...It would be more upgradeable...
  3. thanks much man, i went ahead and got an am3, thanks for the tip, didnt even notice, and yeah its for gaming, that seems like a good deal, i would rather go abit over budget than get something not worth it.
