If you have a digital camera, you might want to look into a drive that has floppy and 7-1 card reader or w/e. Good choice on the Nvidia instead of ATI. Looks like a good build to me.

EDIT

Try looking at Antec PSUs.

psu:

hd 16mb cache:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144701

keyboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823126179


Yah a little more money, but id do the first two for sure. The keyboard I just got and i love it. The keys lite up and is very comfortable, plus comes with a lcd display screen.

Looks like theres a spot at the back for a 120mm fan, so I would rec u add one.
