here is my revised build. critique?
LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model DH-20A4P-04 - OEM
Western Digital Caviar SE WD3200AAJS 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU 500W ATX 12V 2.0 Power Supply - Retail

-$20.00 Instant
-$10.00 Combo
$20.00 Mail-in Rebate

altogether, ~370, with 30 dollars in rebates.

any suggestions? this is about the max of my budget.
i know the mobo is xfire, i want that so it is sort of future proof.

the mobo says it has integrated 3300 graphics, how good is that? (equvalent video card?) can it run oblivion?

my bad, must have deleted the case. this is the combo page:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

rrrgh... sorry for triple post, but if you could do a better build with intel for around the same price, i can get an e8400 for 83$ (i have a friend that works at intel)
