AMD Processor/Mobo/Heatsink/Ram Advice.

I have been posting around and asking for advice for the last month. I finally have the money to drop on a motherboard, processor, heatsink, and ram.

I currently have a Antec Centurion 5 case, 600-watt Power Supply, WD Black 1 Tb Drive, and a dvd-rw drive, and a Sapphire HD5750 for the new setup.

I'm looking to spend around $300 total for all four parts. This will primarily be used for gaming and I would like a motherboard with crossfire support for the future.

If anyone has any up-to-date advice with prices included. Along with any thoughts about deals to look out for in the coming weeks, that would be greatly appreciated.

cooler master makes the centurion

get the AMD athlon II x3 440 around $75
cooler master 212+ for $20 from
2x2GB sticks of the best DDR3 RAM you can get for $100

but that only leaves around $100 for the mobo, the only cross fire boards I can think of that would be close to your budget are the x16, x4 mode ones.

Doh, I can't believe I put Antec.

I'm willing to drop a bit more on the motherboard if necessary, $120-$130 maybe.
