wow, thats a good deal on that video card. but if your going to plan on gaming then you might want to invest $30 more and get a 9600gso. it would be a major improvement over the 8600gts

I don't think my optical drive will work with my motherboard because I just checked and my optical drive is IDE and I don't know if my motherboard supports IDE. Will it work?

It it doesn't this is a SATA optical drive that people are recommending:

Newegg.com - Sony NEC Optiarc Black 22X DVD&#43;R 8X DVD&#43;RW 8X DVD&#43;R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVD&#177;R DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

Your motherboard could still support IDE drives, 2 Max.

That's good.

On the tutorial I watched the person didn't recommend SATA optical drives.

I think I'm going to go with this Duel Core CPU instead of the Quad Core.

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 Wolfdale 2.66GHz 3MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Does it look pretty good?

I think I'm going to get this CPU fan:

Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Edited:

I decided not to get the CPU fan I gave above because the reviews said it was hard to install and since I'm a noob I don't want to mess something up while installing the fan.

Which CPU fan would you guys recommend? I want to spend around $20 on one.

I just watched a trailer for Crysis and I looks AWSOME!!!

I'm definitely going to get it and since I'm getting a cheaper Duel Core processor instead of a Quad Core processor I have enough money to get this:

Newegg.com - MSI R4670-2D512 Radeon HD 4670 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
