Ok, lot's wrong with that list there...hmm where to start....well you need to do some more research..ie in these forums.

Your video card and processor are fine and that case if you like it. But i would pretty much replace everything else with better stuff.

Motherboard is no good:
Get DFI, MSI, ASUS

Get an ACER or ViewSonic monitor

Hard drive is old - get a new generation

Memory is no good OCZ and Corsair are good

That powersupply CANNOT HANDLE that load, its crap.
Get an Antec Truepower series or the OCZ powerstream if you have the $$$. The modstream isn't as good.

Speaker system is a waste. You are better off with a Logitech 2.1 system like the Z-3.

(The case is OK, but you are better of with a case like the thermaltake Saprano.)

Video really isn't any good either since it's an XFX. You should probably switch to eVGA, Leadtek, or someone else with a better reputation.

if you want good 2.1 speakers, and are willing to spend, klipsch has a nice 2.1 pair on newegg.

Ok from what I've read here and what you guys have helped me with I have a revised computer build. I changed most the parts, im still not sure what MOBO to use. I couldn't find any DFI compatible with ATI. I was origanally going to use GeForce because of SLI but from what I've read it's not worth it. Radeon and GeForce looked about the same to me. For the video card I don't want to spend over $250. And like I said earlier I don't know what to do about the MOBO.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811148028 same case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103539 same processor

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823175103 same keyboard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826104178 same mouse

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440 Corsair 1gb memory 2x512's Most likely, I won't be overclocking so really high end memory isn't that neccisary. $77

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121119 Logitech 2.1 Speakers $35

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001072 Samsung LCD 17" Monitor $240

I used Static_11's guide to help me find what parts I want, thanks.

Make sure you get a sata hard drive not ide, better performance:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144178

Trust me on this, get a 19" Lcd, The monitor is the most important thing IMO:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009067

Get a bigger PSU than that (couple bucks more):

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103937

These 2 video cards are what you want to choose from. Best cards for the money on the market right now:

$205 6800gs
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130258

$305 7800gt
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130247

Heres your mboards to choose from:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130484

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

All mboards are compatible with any video card, but mboards are specific to either AMD or INTEL processors.
