Im thinking of selling my CPU, motherboard, RAM & case as I want to build a micro ATX system to sit on my desk.

How does this setup sound? (I will be using my current GFX card, PSU, HDD's & sound card)

It will be a good system I am sure. Do you plan on overclocking your setup?

Not sure how overclockable the AM2 is but if it's similar to the socket 939 4200 x2 then it is HUGELY overclockable, I am limited to 1.55V by my Mobo but can boot @ 2870 but only Prime stable @ 2800 but just think what could be acheived if you were to risk 1.6-1.7V!! If additionally you had the ba*ls to get her naked I reckon you could easily achive 3.2Gig on water.

my 3000+ is very overclockable, is currently at 2500mhz on stock vcore, the memory suck's ass, but i can't find a 2X512 DDR2 800 module so i guess i'm going to keep this one for a while, the board i have is pretty good don't know about yours
