    ummm, i think if you havent any idea, then likely you dont know enough
    to get your feet wet on that big a project.
    Generally those who have been working on their machines for some time,
    have a fair idea what they want for their first custom job. And usually
    they want to get enough confidence building cheaper machines before
    going all-out.
    For me, i like amd am-2 socket boards PCI-E x16 SLI, and enough slots to
    handle up to 3 Gb. Ram.
    from there, i would check out antec for an xt case, while keeping in
    mind the design of the board to figure out where you might have issues
    with space for things like video cards, hard drives, fans etc.
    hell, tell you what- buy a subscription to a magazine geared up towards
    pc modding- they cover everything from fans and screws right up to
    boards, cpu's etc.
    they even have pictorial walk-thrus showing you how to get started.
    But i warn you- dont get too confident right off.

    so then you pretty much KNOW what you want, aside from a mobo (or not).
    in that case, check out various websites for mobo reviews.

    anyhow, i think you might want to give these links a try for your
    one suggestion is to change your 9600 for the 9650, apparently fixing a
    "bug" that is found in the 9600.
    on the other hand, users HAVE got the 9600 to work, but blame Asus for
    not being "enthusiastic" about making an AMD board.
    google search:
    asus m3n-ht amd 9600 phenom reviews
    and a few results:

    Go with EVGA, I had a PNY 7900 GT and it didn't last a year.

    Also, I've heard that you actually slow down (graphic wise) with SLI.
