Default budget build help

hey guys I'm in the US now buying

This 7600gt GFX card


This am2 3500 CPU


and one of these hard drives (which do you recommend?)


I'm flying back to The UK soon so I'll probably buy the rest of my parts from ebuyer or ebay but I'm not really sure what to go for...I want the computer mainly for gaming over the next 6 months...I plan to upgrade the CPU when quad core comes out and dual core should be cheaper so I can get one with more cache than 512kb...

I'm unsure about which mobo to go for and case/psu/cables/cooling system/RAM (1 or 2gb?)

my budget is around $800 - $900 with the gfx card, cpu and hard drive totalling around $400 (with tax) so far...any help will be greatly appreciated
