how much is your budget.. and what monitor reso would you most probably play on?

go for the athlon II.. if you could add more bucks, go for the phenom II x3 720 be.. great cpu.. better than two cores..

your can upgrade your gpu later.. or soon.. it depends ^-^

Some AM2/AM3 mobo ~ 60$.
Phenom II x3 720 ~120$
4GB Dual-Channel (2x2GB) Either DDR3 1333 or DDR2 1066 (D3-50$, D2-40$)
500GB HDD (Western Digital has good warranty, I think) - 55$
9800GT is fine, don't worry about it.

AMD PHENOM II 720X3 CORES BLACK EDITION/2.8GHZ/7.5MB CACHE/AM3 SOCKET
MOTHERBOARD GIGABYTE GA MA790X DS4/AM2+ AM3 READY/DUAL PCI-EXPRESS SLOTS

IDE is out of date...just use a SATA. Get Windows 7 if you can.

You should get DDR3 ram to go with an AM3 chip.
The price difference between 320gb and 500gb hard drives is usually very small so go for 500gb.

If you don't want Vista x64 or Win7, I suggest you to get the XP x64 version. The problem with the actual 32bits OS is that they can't recognize more than 3gb of RAM.
