Default My first build....

This is my first build, it is for gaming. Tell me if you see anything that i should change/add. I put Pentium 4 with HT because i dont know if a dual core will be better. And how hard is it to install a processor? Thats the only thing i dont know how to do.

110$ Video Card- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102668Good core clock good RAM Clock

48$ Hard Drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2144102 80GB

89$ Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...129012 Cool Case And 380WPSU

93$ RAM 1GB-Pqi 2x512- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...41200 2x512mb DDR2 Dual Channel

106$ Processor- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...6231 Pentium 4 3.2Ghz With HT

86$ Motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc... Motherboard With PCI-e PCI and correct RAM support

I have a DVD RW drive, so i dont need that. And if you do suggest an upgrade, try and stay in the general price margin of the product you are changing.
