cool, thanks alot guys, i'm browsing through all the PSU's and they all seem really solid. it's nice to know there is a lot of good choices. yeah, i like ABIT because its user-friendly, and its a pretty good OC mobo. i'm prob not gonna o/c alot, so DFI isn't needed. oh and that's a great point about the ram, i better see whether its a 1 gb stick or 2x512mb and make sure to go with the latter. at least everything goes together well.
i can't wait to play HL2, Madden 2006, CS etc. on this comp!
i'll prob need your guys help when I start building it too haha, but thanks for all the suggestions.
