Default Computer Build

Well Im thinking of building a computer, with these parts which seems pretty good. The one thing im not sure on is the power supply. This will be my second computer. Ill possibly use my old hard drive... if not get one of those raptors I think they are called. I heard that they are super fast. Ill be using my exsisting Cd rom/dvd burner floppy drive and corsair memory 1GB 184 pin.

If I buy these two together as a combo it will be 129 The Graphics card is better than my 9800 pro 256 mB I think. Doesnt matter really, Its shot ^_^

Give me your feed back

don't feel forced to get a video card just because it may seem like you're getting a good deal with the combo or w/e...

Well I need a new one and I like the one since its PCI Express and its decent stats.

I assume you will be gaming? If you are you might need a better video card. If it is a budget gaming system you might want to think about a 7600, or X1600. If not, get the 7950(pricy), or the X1800. I've heard the X1900s don't have much of a performance increase over the X1800s. Oh, and try to get the 512MB versions.
