Default new to building pc's need help

Well i want to build a pc i know it sounds like a long time but i will have enough money for a mobo, processor, hd, and memory for february 16thish, id sell my laptop because its outdate but i decided i want to keep it. So i need you guys' help to help me get the perfect parts.

I plan the base to be this soyo motherboard with this proccessor bundle:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicat...7027&CatId=1181

what do you think will be the life span for this proccessor? Im really into graphics design but i love gaming and id rather have my pc built around gaming than built around graphics and have sucky gaming. I know its not 64 bit but i cant afford a fx-53

im planning on getting 2 512 sticks of ddr ram need advice on that

Im getting a 200gb hd i think its enough for now at least if not ill get another

Im getting a video card maybe for summer since i cant afford it all together.

Also i plan to get a thermaltake case since they look cool and leave a lot of room for expandability.

As for cd roms i plan on getting a multiformat dvd rw and another cdrw/cdrom so ill have two cd roms for quick burning.

I already posted this in the wrong section, but anyway hi guys im new here.

To get you started off, if you will be gaming a lot, dump the Intel. AMD is the gaming CPU you want, not Intel.

"Im getting a video card maybe for summer since i cant afford it all together"

Either get it all now, or wait till you can afford it all together. It's not a good idea to wait, even like a month, for one part.

If you dont have loads of cash get an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro and OC it to XT Speeds, you will be better off for a while.
