Default Yet Another New Build...HOORAY

Well im a newbie and ime lookin at upgrading to a decent computer, so heres my specs. BTW im on a budget of about 1500, with the monitors, which i meet so far. I am buying from these guys, but they match prices so it works out great.

CPU
Amd Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Dual Core Processor Socket AM2 Windsor 2.4GHZ 2X512KB 89W 90NM Retail Box - DirectCanada
or this
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Dual Core Processor Socket AM2 Brisbane 2.5GHZ 2X512KB 65NM 65W Retail Box - DirectCanada

I can get both for about the same price, and i was also wondering how much $155 would get me after Intel's price cuts, because i like intels chips....im just cheap lol.

all of this adds up to roughly 1500, i may try and get the Icemat Siberia, because i dont really use speakers, and i want a nice comfy high quality headset for fairly cheap. Anyways, put any advice you can give me, especially about the intel price drop.
