I'm in the very beginning stages of a new build is this good start?

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor 3.2GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 125W
Dual-Core Processor

What motherboard would compliment this CPU? With little or or no

Mostly entertainment PC...Games, XP Pro

For boards, there's too many good one's to choose from.
I would suggest also starting with a PSU of 500 or higher.
This gives room to expand later. If I were building something like what
your asking about, I'd probably start with something around an 800 Watt PSU.
It's really a better idea to overdue it on a PSU for a few reasons.
One I already mentioned, the other is being sure to have enough power.
The third reason would be for later upgrade.
For instance, if you start with a 1Kw PSU (1,000 Watts)
It gives you that much more headroom to expand.
The rest of what goes in it, is up to you.
