Nice rig,  but is it just me or is that PSU a bit on the low side for such a rig.
And knowing AMD's will overclock quite easy,  i would have gone for 500W. and with a decent ammount of AmpĂ©res on the 12V rail.

Why do I have to go with core 2?  I don't mind them or anything but I wanted something with power for a single core.  Dual core is not too attractive to me after my first one.  I thought about getting a second dual core system but the problems that I had with the first one kept me from making that choice.

Now who wants to show me how to play BF2142 when I get it?

I prefer AMD to Intel, but you should of gone C2D. Getting a single core 3800, is just, old.

Bit of a waste of money seeing as the G80 and R600 are coming out soon. Should of just leveled with an X1900XT or something.

Assuming this is not the VALUE crap, and the XMS version, nice RAM.

Not a very good PSU for this rig.

All in all, not the best of buys but it will handle 2142 on high, yes.

Lot of my decisions where based on $$$ simple as that.  I opted for a good video card over anything else.  I don't really want the new video cards.  Won't have vista and time soon.  And why I choose single core?  Answer is in an above statement.

Your CPU is very overclockable. If you have the CPU that I'm thinking, the 3800+ Venice, then you can get it up to 2.7GHz stable. I'm running it at 2.64 right now perfectly and that is 10%.

Very nice. I would upgrade the PSU to at least 550W. 620W would be better

The PSU will be fine.  I don't plan on adding anything else to the computer.  Just sticking with that.  I also purchase a new monitor yesterday.(Link)  I'll tell you what though i'm going to max out the settings in BF2 and BF2142 and have a blast.
