The single core processors seem to already have dropped in price despite the 7/24 date. zipzoomfly.com has the single core 3800+ for a $139 which I see as an AWESOME price. As for dual core the the 4200+ is like the dual core version of the 3500+ and the 4600+ is the dual core version of the 3800+ they're both at pretty good prices after the drop later this month.
I sat here for ten minutes thinking of which mobos I should recommend... lol. It's hard because I don't really have much experience with so many of them... it may be best to go out and look for reviews and see what would fit your system the best. With that said here are a few solid motherboards:
OK calling that last DFI "solid" is an understatement. It is one of, if not THE best socket 939 motherboard out there (which comes at comes at a premium.)
I've actually had great experience with Biostar so that one should be fine. With processor it's up to you, the 3800+ single core is definately a good "Bang : $$$" processor and you'll have plenty of that left over for something else. But that's still single core so the 4600+ is the better choice in the long run. However I see AMD are STILL charging (in some cases over) twice as much for the dual core version of processors... when will they learn?

I wouldnt go for an Asus board at all cant more strongly reccomend against that board. If i was buying new i wouldnt get 939 i would get am2 price differnce is about 20 quid, but i would also probably go intel with the core 2 duo i like AMD but the conroe is just to good.

Look into something like an X1800XT, X1900XT, 7900GT, or 7600GT depending on your budget for the video card, and some decent ddr2 RAM... like this looks good:
Just wondering warriorscot, why are you so against Asus?

I would wait into Intel's Core 2 Duo line being releases July 23rd.
Do you know if this is a worlwide release or only in the US?

Why is that? Is it a personal preference or are ati's just that better?
Less than 6 months, Nvidias first will be out before that but im waiting for the R600s from ati at christmas.
Can anybody recommend a good review that would explain in depth the aspects of the new hardware which is going to be released soon?
