u might wanna reconsider the x1600. and maybe go with a separate psu as ones with cases arent always reliable. other than that its good

That looks ok. Definately look at a separate PSU, because the ones that come with the cases are pretty shoddy.

I read through your other thread re: the X1600. I would really suggest the 6800GS, because it will kill the x1600.

Make sure the second hard drive is a SATA drive.

You might want to consider 2gb of ram. 2x 1gb.
Yea a nice 500w PSU from OCZ or Antec.
Other than that it looks like a nice build.

X1600 can't take the advantage of it's 512MB becuase it has poor memory bandwidth, 6800GS is much better choice and it might be cheaper

Cool

would it be faster to use 4x 512 mb sticks or 2x 1 gb stick since my board is dual channel
