    This is my rig - it is pretty affordable:

    AMD AM2 5200+ Dual Core
    Abit KN9 -SLI (I think...)
    Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-5400C4 2GB 2X1GB PC2-5400 DDR2-667 CL 4-4-4-12 240PIN Dual Channel Memory
    XFX Geforce 8600 GTS XXX (256)

    I would go for something similar - you can easily upgrade the video card to like a 9600/9800 and save a bunch. I wouldn't get one of the 260's or anything because they are HUGE (don't fit into my case)

    I like what I have so far but I would get 4 gigs of ram.
