You really don't wanna know... You could get a nice 46" Sony Wega TV for damn near the price that the Mobo/Chip/memory will cost for that setup...
The FX chips are great btw... but kinda worthless still because of the 32 bit bottleneck that windows xp creates... Once the set drivers come out for the 64 bit edition of Windows, gaming will be better and more stable. Not to mention, incredibly fast and with huge bandwidth to support it.
There is supposedly a Far Cry 64 bit edition that is due out in beta by the end of the year. Problem is that the video card makers are slow to bring out 64 bit support beyond the alpha level and the cards are suffering in benchies compared to 32 bit sets...
By the time that Windows new OS "Longhorn" comes out in late 2005, it will be worth it to have a native 64 bit cpu... let alone an Athlon 64 fx cpu with 128 bits...
