Yea bulding will save alot of money, especially with lower end computers.

#7 looks good. But, i would have to say that if your downloading stuff, a bigger hdd may be usefull, a 160 good, and make it sata, if that board supports it, if not go to the ol reliable ata-133

yeah, if you build one, you can get a 120gb or 160gb Seagate SATA which will be better if your downloading stuff.
