Default Is this ill? first build

this is what i plan on building:
DFI Lanparty ultra-d nf4
AMD san diego 3700+
gskill extreme 2gb ddr500
eVGA 7800gt
antec truepower 2.0 550w
seagate 160gb 7200

havent decided on a case yet, need a cool (temperature) case <$100
a good optical drive (sony or lite-on or Plextor?) dvd-rw

i'll probably be ocing this rig a bit, so any CHEAP cooling solutions are welcome or any changes in specs i'll look into.

Looks nice. That is almost the exact same build I have apart from the HDD. I'm very happy with mine, I hope you'll be happy with yours.

check out the aspire X-Plorer....

It has room for like 5 fans. The thing looks like it would be a sweet "cool case". Dual 80MM intakes, top 80MM exhaust, rear 120MM exhaust. CPU fan connected to an air duct that sucks air inside the case from OUTSIDE the case. Also it has a temp read out and fan controller. Thats what im getting in a few months...
GPU: MSI GTX 260 @ 650MHz/1175MHz
CPU: Intel E6750 @ 3.4GHz/1.33v/60c
HSF: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
SND: Creative Audigy 4
SPK:Logtech X-540s
MOS: Logitech MX600 Wireless Laser

Try a Lian Li, they are very cool cases... with four 80mm fans and all alumenum chasis... very cool.

20 bucks over.. but if you can:

I would suggest upgrading that to one of the AMD X2. Dual core is the future of CPU and you are limiting the futrue of the PC if you dont a duel core.
