MB : MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum - Fully loaded and equipped with nForce3 250Gb chipset
PSU : Antec TruePower 430W (I never heard of "Vibe Antec"???)
MEMORY : OCZ 3500EB or 3700EB (2x512) - OCZ "EB" series is the best ram for Athlon 64 and FX.
From what I read, money is no object for you! :smile:

Your specs seem fine to me. Still waiting on an X800XT. Read my woes in the Videocard section here.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
Okay, got the confusion cleared some. The AMD FX-53 is either a socket 940 of 939, right. The MSI K8N Platinum and K8N Neo-FSR has the nforce3 250gb chipset, but is a socket 754 motherboard (not for the AMD FX-53 but for AMD 64, socket 754). http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pr...
Now the socket 939 motherboard (for AMD FX-53) from MSI with the nvidia chipset is called K8N Neo2 Platinum, but the chipset is the nvidia Nforce3 Ultra and not the nforce3 250Gb.
