Im building a computer and was wondering if this looked any good...

Also im wondering... Should i get the AMD Phenom II x3 720 BE or the AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE...

Are there any compatiblity issues? And is the mobo i picked very good for 60? Are there any DOA stories?

X3 is very good, you can try to unlock to 4 cores, would recommend getting 4 gigs of ram and where is your video card?

4 maybe 6 if you need, oh and on AMD chips and on certain motherboards you can unlock the extra core because instead of throwing out miscut 4 cores, they find the number of bad cores and lock them. While they didnt pass the inspection, they still can be used but you just have to supply extra power to them.
