Deals/Advice On New Build Gaming Rig

    I'm looking for a barebones unit to couple with a decent graphics card to make a decent gaming rig (probably for Bad Company 2). Looking for 'bang for buck' over 'OMG so pretty & fast'.

    I've been looking at this Quad core but am unsure if the CPU and motherboard are any good.

    Any advice?

    Looking at the AMD Phenom ii 555 black edition CPU now due to it's potential for unlocking the disabled cores, and overclocking ability.

    What I really need now is advice on the type of motherboard I should be looking for. I know I need ACC, however after a bit of research on the web i'm not sure all versions of ACC can be used on this chip. I've also read I should be looking for boards with a Southbridge 750 chip, are these common/inexpensive?
