First PC Build

RE: First PC Build
I was looking at AMD for value, basically. The price difference for relatively comparable chips seems to be $50 to $100 between AMD and Intel. The idea was to sink that price difference into a bit better mobo and video card. Would the Intel chip make that much of a difference?

After doing a bit more reading, I'm leaning toward a Radeon 6950 2GB. There are a couple of them for under $300 that seem to be well-reviewed. I love the idea of going to dual cards, but I'm pretty sure it would be pretty heavy overkill for me at this point.

Thanks for the site, BTW. Great resource for folks like myself.
