I would suggest a better motherboard such as MSI K9A2 CF-F V2. An AMD/ATI graphics card could take advantage of Crossfire if you get a second card, that motherboard will handle Crossfire. If you're not going to use Crossfire to combine two graphics cards into one, a BIOSTAR TFORCE TA780G M2+ will be a good choice. Also, if you get a newer AM2+ processor (The processor you selected is old and doesn't need that type of memory), you should use DDR2-1066 memory. If you get DDR2-1066 memory, Kingston's HyperX memory is a good choice. Remember, these boards have on-board video so if you buy a graphics card, the on-board will have to be disabled in the BIOS. The processor you chose doesn't include a cooling solution. Your video card is extremely expensive for a 9600 GT. The HIS Hightech H485F512P Radeon HD 4850 is more powerful and cheaper, it doesn't include the memory kit the one you chose did, but it is just a better card.

Which motherboard did you select, the Mobo and the Processor have the same links? If you're gaming, I would get a processor with a higher clock speed, the 2.5GHz AMD Phenom 9850 BLACK EDITION would do well. It is more expensive though. If you're a serious hardcore gamer, an Intel Core 2 Quad would be better along with an aftermarket cooler.

Going to use it for gaming but i dont need like super graphics im fine with turning the settings down some :thumbsup:

I've been using AMD Athalon X2 3800, 1gb of ram and Nvidia Geforce 7600 GS, and i figured it's time for an upgrade.

Absolutely, it is time for an upgrade! I suggest getting as much RAM as you can afford, the mobo selected can hold 8 GB. That would be four sticks with 2GB each. I also suggest Vista 64-bit since it will allow for memory at and above 4 GB. In the future, you can add another graphics card and use Crossfire. That is if you want super graphics later.
