Default final decision.. opinions?

ok so ive decided on my components.. here goes

Mother Board


Video Card


Hard Drive

CD Drive

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
