You might want to consider a core 2 duo.

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131045

CPU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819115003

As for memory are you going to overclock?

DVD burner/cd rom drive/burner: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16827249006 (cost to much?)

And howe much do you want to spend on a video card?

I don't have time right now (maybe later) to make a list, but I agree that you should base this build around an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Even the low end e6300 or e6400 would be great choices.

I would like at LEAST a 256mb nVIDIA card, but im lookin at the 512mb SLI. Price is an object, but budget is 2k. Looking to spend 1/2 that so i can spend 1k on something else though

Oh, and I saw that motherboard, but it has some horrible reviews. anyone here with an opinion?
