i've been wondering, what is the equivalent of the 4400+ Athlon in Opteron form and is it in Skt 939, will it give me any benefits because everyone thinks opterons are better, what is the difference? and for PC4800 RAM, if we don't OC it then will it run at PC3200 until we do OC it? and will there be a lot of preformance hits?

opterons run about the same as a 3800+ to a 4000+ unoverclocked for the 165 like people are getting, they are a good option in general due to the lower price than the athlons.

that's a good list, you want Corsair XMS RAM not the G.Skill, have a look at Geil but they don't have as good a rep as Corsair.

Might want to try another mobo like one of the abits or MSI boards as they are cheaper and better for beginners than the dfi and you get an extra pci slot as he ultra d has a redundant PCI-E slot(its not sli that extra x16 size slot is superflous.)

i thought for operton processors, your ram NEEDS to be ECC and registered, both of which the ram listed is not, otherwise good list.

NO, in the socket 939 opteron dual cores you use regular unbuffered memory. They fit on normal 939 boards also.
