don't get the triple channel kit, Phenom's only use dual channel, get a 2x2GB kit
my other thought is, what GFX card are u using/plan to use
ditch the seagate and get a good Western Digital, and go for a little more space and speed, WD640 Black

plus, does the mobo, proc, and memory compatible?

well, like i said about the memory, get a 2x2GB kit since you only have dual channel at most, change the cpu, thats an AM2 cpu
and if you don't plan to use another 4870, you could really drop your PSU down in wattage to 650w easily

this is pretty much the same cpu, but not black edition for the AM3, if you want the unlocked multi's then:

Using 1 4870, Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) for the RAM, so why couldnt i use the first cpu i posted?
