You need a heatsink/fan for that OEM processor of yours. I like to buy OEM products too, but the only exception not to take lightly is the processor. Retail is just a better deal!

I'll go for the retail. Why should I switch my PSU? I have heard only good things about Fortron.

I'm sticking with Chaintech. Hows the MSI K8N mobo? I'm sticking with the Hitachi hdd. My budget is 600 for the system only. I already have a monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse. I will just get windows xp pro, 600 is the budget for the system itself. The parts I have listed come out to around 593 or so.
