Default Fixing to order PC

Yes it's another PC building advice thread! But since I'm very, very new at this I can't ever be to careful. Going to order most of this next week. This computer is for many different things but mostly gaming. My budget is at about 1,200-1,300. I will probably wait until the geforce 7900 comes out to see how much that effects the prices of the 7800 or if the 7900 is a good price itself.

I would love any further suggestions on the build before I send in my order. Thank you.

I assume the compatability of all this is good to go?

I won't be keeping any music files or videos on this computer. Not to mention I don't have the funds for the 150 gig raptor. Hopefully, 74gigs will be enough.

And yes, I'm from the south

No raptor... 250gb seagate.

AMD x2 3800 instead of 3700.

Don't have the extra 100+ to spend on the 3800 or else I would.
