Default final decision.. opinions?

ok so ive decided on my components.. here goes

Mother Board
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491

Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103539

Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130258

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440

Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822135106

CD Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152058

what do you think... is there anything i can downsize on that wont effect performance greatly? cause im kinda goin over budget a bit
i have one concern.. the harddrive says its ATA150.. but my motherboard says the storage slots are ATA100 or SATA150. will this drive be compatible?

also what could be altered to benefit gaming?.. thats mainly what im using it for so opinions on how to make it even better for gaming without price increase would be great

do you think its a good idea? will that drop have a big difference? also if you look on new egg, the 3500+ has 3 different types.. and theyre all within 1 dollar of each other.. whats the difference
