You can probably tone it down a bit on the PSU.
Also, what's up with tigerdirect? www.newegg.com is better IMO.
And why the NIC.. you have onboard 1gb port on your motherboard.
Ok, thanks for help'n out!
Thanks for the tip, so the memory is good?
So would u suggest like a http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...1&Sku=ULT31848
Yea, I know NewEgg is like really good, but I just used TigerDirect as a sample idea of what to get. No idea why. But depending on if NewEgg has the same or very very similar products will determine which I use. They are both pretty good.

I think I speak for the whole board when I say, that's one killer rig. Just a couple things I should point out-
1) You don't really need that hard drive cooler. If you were going to be running 3+ hard drives close together, then I'd say go for it.
2) You don't really have to go quad-core right now. The only time you'd really it shine is if you do heavy multitasking, a Q2D dual core would do you just fine.
3) If your budget's that large, have you looked at the raptor 150gigs? I'd recommend that for your OS and games, and maybe a 160, (They go around 80-120) for storage and whatnot.
4) You also don't really need that ethernet adaptor, all of the mobo's I'm aware of come w/ one built in.
Besides those 4 things, that rig looks killer dude.
EDIT: And that memory is freaking awesome.
Ok so sratch the HD cooler
Yeah but by the time I get the money, quad will be cheaper. I'm thinking to the future lol
Well, I really don't wanna go higher than what I have it aimed at... It's gonna take around 8 months at a part time job to aquire the mulah being I'm a junior in HS. But do you think that PC would be good?
Yeah I got confused on the ethernet.
EDIT: IF you are wondering, is he gonna get an OS? I'm gonna get Vista. my mom can get it for free because of her newly bought Gateway, So she said she didn't want it. lol
and I updated the list
