So I've decided to try building a dedicated mining rig and I scrounged around my house for parts I can use already. 

I found these parts:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 1.86ghz
Asus P5Q SE PLUS mobo
500gb HD
2gb Gskill ram

The only thing I need is a GPU, I think I might buy a Radeon 5850 or 5830 depending on what I can get my hands on.  Will these cards work with what I currently have?  Does anyone have any other suggestions for my rig?

Thanks.

It likely will work just fine.

Other mining components don't have to be top of the line.

Looks like that mobo has one PCIe x16 2.0 and two x1's. So you can get PCIe extenders for the x1 slots and two additional graphics cards if you wanted.

If you went with three 5850's and GNU/Linux you should be looking at, at least 1050 Mhash/s.

Time is money. This means that if you have spare time, you can use it to make money.

Modular, open, and stack-able miner case.

Good luck finding 58XX cards at all.  Unless you want the XFX versions (which run quite a bit hotter) you're out of luck, as all of the Sapphire cards are out of stock everywhere.

This late in the game I would suggest a 5770.

You could go for a 6950, but fall is creeping up and the new 7000 series should be arriving, so I would't spring the full price for a card that may be out of date in 3 months.
