Wouldn't it be wiser to get a quad? I thought the tri-core stuff was mediocre, but of course that jacks up the price a fair amount. And unless you plan to do some serious OC'ing, wouldn't a non-black edition be fine? Such as the X3 710? Then you could probably afford a HD4870.

And yeah it seems wiser to stick to DDR2 on a fairly budget minded PC. Maybe by sticking with DDR2 you could get the quad-core Phenom II instead?

TBH though I don't have much Phenom II or i7 knowledge right now since I just haven't been overly interested.
