    Guys i have all things needed except for the processor....i had the AMD Athalon 64 x2 3800+ in mind but someone told me that it was a pretty old processor, plus newegg does not have them in stock anymore so what would you guys recommend??

    Hold on a second. Is this a socket 939 motherboard or a socket AM2 motherboard you're trying to shove a processor into? If it's socket 939, Athlon 64 (X2) 3800 and up is wonderful. Otherwise, I'd reccomend you spend the same amount of money and enjoy an Athlon 64 X2 4600 AM2, which is also conveniently $120.
