Default Need comments on my soon to be computer

I had a 750 budget so yeah.

- G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Memory ($49.99)

- XFX GeForce 8600GT PVT84JUDD3 XXX Video Card ($109.99)

-Western Digital Caviar SE 160GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive ($49.99)

-Sony NEC Optiarc Black IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model DDU1615/B2s ($17.99)

-RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WB Black Computer Case With Side Panel Window ($79.99)

-AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ 2.5GHz Socket AM2 65W Processor ($99.99)

-ASUS M2N ATX AMD Motherboard ($72.99)

-Rosewill RP500 500W Power Supply ($44.99)

I was trying to look for a second harddrive so I could run my OS off of that, but I was not able to find any smaller sized, non expensive ones.

All these parts are from Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

I also got a 19" Dell Flat screen in mind from Ebay

Any upgrade of that 8600 would certainly be worthwhile
