That looks nice. Only real problem I see is the mouse... you're paying 30 dollars for that mouse..? Why..? It's definately not worth 30 dollars.. =\

Better Power supply - Fortron 450 Watt

What thermal Paste?

There is no real advantage in media center, save yourself a Buck and get Home or Pro.

Better DVD Burner - Samsung @ Newegg for 31 Bucks

What Cooling Setup? How many extra fans will be bought for given Case?

`I didn't know what mouse to get lol any suggestions? (doesn't have to be anything special)
`Artic silver thermal paste.
`Getting media center because its a free upgrade to Vista Home premium
`The 450 Forton doesn't have 2 PCI-E 16 power plugs for future upgrades
`was gunna use the 3 fans that come with the case (2X120mm, 1X80mm)

Samsung is the Better Deal for Less Money.

If you want a Power supply for future upgrades Than don't Get the rosewill.
Enermax
Antec
Seasonic
eTagan
Hiper
There are good ones for around 50-60$ Look around.

Its not the best you can buy for that dollar Range.
For example. the 535 Watt Enermax is Sli/Crossfire Certified, it is of much higher quality than the Listed rosewill and can be found for 61 ish using froogle and other websites. It is also the Same Power Supply I have in my Signature and its rock Hard Stable.

But, I can't stop you from buying anything, all I can do is reccomend better Parts/components. Its up to you to decide.
