Default 1st Build, Help Needed

hey guys, like i said this will be my first time building a pc. I've read in numerous forums and articles that it isn't to hard as long as you have a familiarity with all the parts. I also have numerous guides online that do a step by step walk through of putting everything together. So far here is my build, i'll be ordering it in the next week or so.

Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Sorry for not putting links on the last couple of parts, the internet here sucks (i'm deployed :| ) Anyways if anyone has any input on better parts or compatibility issues, please let me know. Also if anyone has any good links to building guides online, it would be greatly appreciated.

I think you double posted?

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
