Default Gamer Pc

hey everyone,
first time trying to build a gaming pc with just my research and just wanted to see if i made a good pick in terms of chip/mobo/vid card

AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Ed. 2.50GHz Retail

Asus M3A78-T Motherboard or MSI K9A2 Platinum Motherboard

Visiontek Radeon HD 3850 Video Card

the platinum mobo can hold up to 4 vid card which is nice for future upgrades, and im not set yet with going for a 256mb card might go higher and then get a second one when its cheaper.

i just heard from the rumour mill that the phenom 2 are soon to come out, but im not really sure if those are going to be affordable, when it does. i figure ill get the phenom at a good price when pt2 comes out.

pls let me know what you think

thanks a lot!:help:
