Default Newb - advise on a few components

I was wondering if I could get some suggestions for hard drives, memory, psu.
I will use for moderate gaming, video and CAD - no over clocking (though I will prob venture into the stickies and educate myself later)

I just ordered an Antec 900 (after reading some posts here..thanks)
CPU - Core 2 Duo E6600
MB - Intel D975xbx2 775 (wish I would have found this forum before I bought)
Vid - 2ea x1600pro 512mb pcie (from old sys will prob update later)
Pioneer 111d, Sony DRU800A, Phiilips SPD2410BD
Any suggestions on brands/types/models of the following;
memory - PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2 x 1024MB)
HD - 150-250GB SATA
psu
Vista (still reading about issues and versions) have been using XP Home

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hey cruise12,
Welcome to T.F.!!

Get two sets of Crucial Ballistix. A Samsung Spinpoint 500GB HDD....and an XClio GREATPOWER 550w.

If you don't already have the motherboard, then I'd recommend the Gigabyte P35-DS3R.

If you want, wait for July 22, and get the e6750.

try these
MEM : Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

HDD : Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) ST3250620AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

PSU : Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

hope this fits into your price range, if not here's a more budget PSU
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP550V2-D-SL 550W SLI Ready-ATX 12V V2.01 Power Supply 115/230 V CSA,UL,TUV - Retail

and you should be able to modarately game with those 2 cards for the time being

i would agree with this build too, but if u do heaps of video editing and cad then 4gb of ram instead of 2gb. and maybe a sumsung spinpoint instead of the seagate.
