your link doesnt work.
you need to list the individual parts and their linked web pages.
also, don't place your faith in mail-in rebates. it sucks, but you hardly ever get the correct paperwork, and really it is more of a hassle than it is worth.
as you are busy spending time building and tweaking your new rig, lol

I wouldn't do that. You need a quality power supply, and 80gb HDD is small.

Just seriously, go with the build that coke gave you up at the top, it's the best.
