Default Form FActor build...need decisions

Hey

I have been looking on newegg for a little bit now and i am thinking about building a sysstem for my brother using a form factor pc...i have narrowed my selections down to 2 or 3 for every category for the case, mobo, vid card, and dvd burner. I know that i want a x2 4400+ Toledo. I also am not sure what i need in terms of hard drive, RAM, and psu. my bro doesn't overclock often but i might be tweaking his system in the future.

Below are some of the options that i have looked at...

Case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&SubCategory=7

Mobo

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...SubCategory=22

Vid Card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...SubCategory=48

DVD burner

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&SubCategory=5

Processor

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103546


P.S. I do not need mouse keyboard or monitor

Let me know if i am forgetting anything

You mean *Small* Form Factor right? Anyway, your case link doesn't work. Try an Antec Aria!

Also, in terms of overclocking, microATX motherboards aren't so great. Most don't have any overclocking options at all (like mine ) and I've never found one that had voltage options. The best I can say is that this motherboard has good reviews.

You should go with 2gb of generic RAM since your brothers not going to OC. How much hdd space is your brother going to use? What is your remaining budget?
