ok they work now...

if ur gonan be surfing the web, save bucks and get a mobo with onboard video.

are u gonna be downloading stuff? cuz then that hd is good for u.

u could also go for SATA, since it's faster, but I'm to lazy to check if the mobo's compatible (hope that's not a stupid comment). THere's also cheaper, larger SATA hds.

As for the case, It's pretty cool! But there's probably better...

once u cut all that out, you could probably get a bigger harddrive, a better case, or a better processor. Good luck!

I noticed that you chose a Socket 754, but that motherboard is a Socket A 462.
