Default Budget Build (Old School Gamer)

Here is a build I just put together in the last few minutes and will probably order it pretty soon.

Give me some suggestions if you find any better deals. This rig won't be playing anything graphically intense at all so don't tell me I need a Conroe/Geforce8800 combo.

This will replace my current desktop at home and I want it to last for a while. I won't be upgrading to Vista anytime soon either. I also will be using my old monitor, keyboard, mouse and optical drive.

Any other questions feel free to ask.

Case:

Processor:

Motherboard:

Video Card:

HDD:

Feel free to offer your suggestions.

*EDIT*
Total price: $664.96

Sorry to bump but I just wanna make sure all of this is compatible with each other.

Does everything look ok as it is?

Check out that Video Card if you want. Actually cheaper and passively cooled, so no loud annoying fan. I've got 2 in my rig OCed and they still stay at less than 55 degrees.

This is now my current build. I will begin ordering parts soon and I'm sure I'll be back asking for help on the installation/building process.

Yeah I know and for some odd reason it said I didn't have permission to delete my post.

I've deleted some before but it won't let me on that one.
