The 3700+ would be better/cheaper option. The 7600GT is faster, i would go with the gigabyte mobo because asus has some reliability problems in their amd mobos, i wouldnt bother with SLI if its costing you alot more money though its better not to have it and spend the money on a better gfx card.

With the processor, it depends what you want to use it for. If you want a gaming machine, I would reccomend the AMD. If you want a multimedia machine mixed with a little gaming go with the Pentium D. As for the graphics card, I would have to agree with warriorscot. The 7600GT is faster and I myself prefer Nvidia(look at my system specs). I would also agree with him on the motherboard.
