Upgradeing my PC, need help.

  1. I'm upgrading my PC and have about 500$ to spend right now.
    I was thinking of getting:

    ASUS M2R32-MVP Socket AM2 AMD 580X CrossFire ATX AMD Motherboard
    OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Micron D7 Chip Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Windsor 2.8GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor

    Can you guys suggest anything better for the same price or maybe different manufacturers? nVidia/ati, AMD/Intel? I haven't kept up with everything lately and don't know whats the current best for gaming.

    Looking at the tomshardware charts the AMD looks to out perform the Intel, could anyone else give some input on which to choose please.
