Well I would get an x800 xl instead of a 6600 gt. The x800 xl is a lot more powerful and it currently has the best price/performance ratio on the market. Only costs about $280.

No no no, tha x800 xl is a video card not a motherboard silly.

Here is a link to what I mean, this is more powerful than the 6600 gt and still a decent price:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...164-041&depa=1

Also for the audigy you don't really need the retail packaging or the gamer version (unless you really want all those games)
So I think you want this one:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...102-178&depa=1

Also have you decided yet on a case and power supply?
