Alright so I guess my old account got deactivated..

But anyways I'm making a performance PC which MUST include an AMD Quad Core Proccessor Unless someone can convince be otherwise,
4 GB RAM and anywhere from 500GB - 1TB of space Obviously the motherboard has to be AM3 socket type and able to hold up to 16GB ram, I need a decent video card to just watch movies in better quality maybe a little gaming, and a slightly better than decent sound card for some music production. Id like a quiet system, looking to overclock/use the new core unlocker so some Cooling would be nice.

Please help, Thanks :)

That, looks awesome actually. is there perhaps a phenom II x4 proccessor that could be incorporated into the build? and Is it 506 after shopping? Cause I can go up to 520 CAD.

Thanks this build alot, but Im just gonna wait around to see some more sresults that might come along.

CAD is Canadian dollar, unknown, so I don't think even that build will work. Unfortunately I think to go with a quad core is a little unrealistic at this price range if you are also expecting any kind of video card. I'll take a gander at newegg.ca, but you may need to up your budget, or save up for another time.
