___ =2gigs of value ram. I donno what value ram to get:

___ =I haven't decided on a mobo:\ Any suggestion?

115 =Seasonic 500W..? This mabe be overkill seeing that I'm not going to be OCing

$60 = Centurion 5]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811119068&CMP=OTC-pr1c3watch&ATT=Cases yes??

100 =Seagate 250G Comments? Suggestions instead?

___ =fans... suggestions?

___ =Monitor, um I plan on getting a LCD 17 or 19in thats good for gaming etc but not too expensive.

000 =I don't care how perfect the sound is because I'm just going to use some junky ones for now lol

___ =[Nec burner? has good reviews..]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16827152047 ... Looks like its outa stock..:\ Any other suggestions for an optical drive?

Do I need to buy some Arctic Silver if I don't plan to OC past stock voltage...?

What do you want to do with this computer? Gaming? Video editing? That Seasonic is not overkill because you have some hefty hardware as it is. If you are gaming you'll want at least 30A on the 12v. rails.

The Seagate harddrive is good. That is SATA, correct?

As for fans, what does your case come with? Since you are not OCing the standard heatsink should be fine.

I like the Viewsonic VX724 (17") and the VX924 (19") models. They have a 3ms response time! Samsung makes great monitors, too. What is your budget?

Lite-On and LG make good optical drives.

I'd go with samsung. it has 4ms response time at 19" which anything below 8ms is good i believe. someone with more knowledge on lcd's can probably steer you in the right direction. I just stick with crt's since space isn't an issue
P.S. heres a link
