Id stay away from valueselect if I were you. I was the same when I built my system about a year ago, I was on a tight budget but value ram with a fast cpu is a waste, itll end up caping you.

And mobo wise, Ive been pretty impressed by Asus's AM2 boards, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131011
