I need a mobo, cpu, gpu, and ram. I'm looking to spend around $350 and I want it to play games well. Can anyone recommend some parts? ram and mobo are pretty easy, ill go for a cheap gigabyte and some gskill ram.

as far as cpu and gpu go there's a lot more to choose from. It looks like the X3 720 and gts250 might be the best performance for the price but I'm not sure if there's anything to gain or lose from using an nvidia gpu and ati cpu, or if that's even the best combo at the moment.

Is there any advantage or disadvantage to running an nvidia gpu on an anti system? would you go with the nvidia? these cards are a good deal faster according to toms charts *about 2k 3dmark*
