Not much in carry over parts. I have a decent 22in monitor, could keep my key board and mouse, but that's about it...I have a windows xp disk, but might choose vista

Sounds good

So I have 2 questions

1) Are all thoes parts on the componant page that was linked compatible. Let's say under the budget-mid range section.

2) Where do I find a manual on how to connect thoes parts?

Will do in just a moment.

Let's say I ask tigerdirect to build it for me. They have these builds ready for configuration. Would this case/build not be suitable if I configure the following parts?

Systemax Venture VX3M Intel & genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium Build-to-Order Desktop PC: Intel DP35DP Motherboard & 3 Year On-Site Warranty at TigerDirect.com

Intel DP35DP ATX Motherboard w/Gigabit LAN

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz 8M Processor

2GB DDR2 PC6400 800MHz Dual Channel (1GB x 2)

500GB SATA Data Safe RAID 1 Mirror (500GB x 2)

GeForce 8800GT 512MB PCI-Express
