well dude, lol...look at the card you posted. It has some scrappy looking finned metal plate that's supposed to be a cooler. No heatpipes and definitely not much surface area

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG HD642JJ 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (Bare Drive) - Internal Hard Drives

2) You can get a Trupower 650W if you get the Antec 300 combo deal
Newegg.com - Antec True Power Trio TP3-650 650W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply with Three 12V Rails - Power Supplies

3) I would go for the Sunbeamtech Core Contact Freezer, it's much better than the AF7Pro
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

4) The mobo you chose is mATX....I would go for the P5Q Pro which is 100 after rebates...a very good board
Newegg.com - ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Or the Biostar Tforce which is 99, but the P5Q Pro has better cooling
okay, i am going to take all those advice, except one. The cpu cooler. i think i am gonna stick with my original choice on that one. That $20 difference is big, because i am already going over limit. Do you think this is dangerous? i am not going to Overclock.

Did you guys have a chance to look at my concerns?

Thank you in advance everyone

Usually it seems like people that build their first gaming pc's start out with boob tube monitors.

And about your question with your $19.99 cpu heatsink/fan, you will be completely fine with it. Especially since you're not overclocking.
