I say if you're on the track of buying things for your computer, you should next look at a good soundcard, speaker system (Logitech X-530 5.1 are great), and maybe another gig of memory.
I'd go for:
Creative Audigy2/X-Fi Soundcard - 60/100$
Logitech X-530 5.1 Speakers - 60$
Extra Gig of Ram - ~100$

But maybe that's just me

Green Radience gave you some good advice. There are some things to consider, however.

I would definitely buy from the "Egg". If you take some time to watch their site, you can get some good rebates. For instance, the DFI Ultra-D is now $122.99. It probably was $108 when he made the link.

You can get 2GB (2 X 1024) DDR (500) PC-4000 OCZ EL Gold Gamer for @162.99 after $40 rebate:

You can also save some money on HDD's. See my sig.

Here is the link to the DFI tech website:

Go there for some good advice, also. They have much to offer someone who uses their mobos and wants to build their own box.

Read as much as you can before making a decision. There are many places to save money and get a good system.

- COOLER MASTER Wave Master TAC-T01-E1C Silver Case
- DFI LanpartyUT nF4 Ultra-D (BIOS = latest)
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo 1GHz HT 2 x 1MB L2 Cache
- OCZ 2GB (2 X 1024) DDR (500) PC-4000 EL Gold Gamer Ext. XTC (OCZ5002048ELGEGXT-K)
- OCZ PowerStream OCZ520ADJSLI ATX, BTX, EPS12V 520W
- XFX Geforce 7900 GTX 512MB (665/1630)
- HITACHI Deskstar 7K80 80GB 3.5\" SATA 3.0Gb/s x 2 (RAID)
