all looks good to me... only i'm not a big fan of the overpriced kingston memory... i would recommend 2 gigs of g.skill ddr500 ram, only 180 dollars for 2 gigs i think it was... and hard drive, that all depends on what you want.. if you hate load times, pick up a wd raptor... if you don't mind load times, then grab a wd 250 gb, 16 mb cache hdd

a Western Digital Caviar for hard drive, just pick a size. case should be an Antec Sonata or something basic, so u can put money into a 3700+
which processor are u using?

if u dont know yet u should get an Antec SmartPower 450/480 not sure which it is watt.

Well I don't know what to buy,
That Raptor HD sounds good but that would be ... uhm 80Gb or more, the size is also a plus for load times or that doesn't matter??

And the CPU that would be a AMD64 3700+ you said but what's the price and only had like $400 to buy those things

oh, so ur budget is $400, that makes everything much clearer, here is ur list........

Opteron 144, its about $170 or something

Western Digital Caviar 250GB, around $100

ThermaltAke Soprano, or Antec Sonata, which is no more than $80 or something.

yeah, i dont think $400 is enough.....hmm....well...ur gonna have to go with like a sempron or something, and a cheap *** case......cant skim on a PSU, so that would be an Antec of some sort, and ram cant be 2 GB.....wow.......new list......here it is

AMD Athlon 3200+, it overclocks really welll dun wry and is $100

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220006
its a patriot 2x512MB, and has great ratings, and is $88

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144416
$75, a good hard drive

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824224007
has good ratings, and is fairly cheap $150 about

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824224007
a good cooler master case

total is about $460, a lil over ur budget, but a great one nonetheless.

EDIT: btw if u also need a power supply, then the
