Alright, thanks allot for the quick replies guys! Here's what I've got so far:

Hard Drive(s) - Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

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

Power Supply - Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-620HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 620W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

As for the Motherboard, is it alright if I stick with the Commando? Any other advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks again, Max.

The Commando is a waste of money...if you really want it though..still a 113 board will perform very similar for a lot less..If it was me I wouldn't

No, that's not the thing. I origianlly asked this crack head for the Newegg.com - ASUS Striker Extreme LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX The Ultimate Gaming Motherboard - Retail

Unfortunately, the Commando just 'appeared' to be in my computer instead. So I should get a different one than? Suggestions?

I don't like paying anything over 200 for a board right now becuase I believe its a huge waste. The Striker has nice features but I would just get a plain 680i or keep the Commando..

Seeming I already have the Commando, is there anything really significant about the 680i? I noticed the 680i has PCI express while the Commando doesn't. Is that really important?

The 680i has 2 or 3 PCI E slots for SLI. The Commando only has one and isn't SLI compatible but thats ok. I would just keep it and not worry.

Opps your right I never changed it since getting the other 2gb of pc-8500.
The corsair psu has been getting alot of praise in the past month or so. It seems to be a really good psu for the price. Nice choice. The board has pci express but dosnt support sli so if your not going sli then the cammmando is a very good board. Wait I think that right about sli. Sora is that right?
