Default Just put the order through!

So this is the PC I just ordered:

DFI LanParty Ultra-D
AMD X2 4400+
eVGA 7900 KO Superclocked
Maxtor 250GB 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
Coolermaster Centurion 5 Case (Cheapest "good" case I could find)
TT Big Typhoon (thanks to everyone's good advice - thanks nitestick)
Hiper 580 Type R PSU

I'm using my old DVD-RW, and 2x512MB RAM from my previous rig, the one still in my sig. And I'm using my trusty old 17" CRT until I can afford something bigger and better!

What do you guys think?

The parts ought to be here on Tuesday, maybe Wednesday. Can't wait!

AMD64 X2 4400+
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
2GB Kingston Hyper-X (2-3-2-6)
TT Big Typhoon
eVGA 7900GT KO Superclocked (650/1650)
250GB Maxtor DiamondMax SATA2 HDD
Hiper Type-R 580W SLi PSU
19" Sony Trinitron CRT
