These are updated links and should now work.

I have decided to change the GPU to an radeon x1900xt, and am thinking of changing the mobo to the one above it on the page, due to what i think is its built in wireless capability.

Any more advice is welcomed.

I was also recently wondering whether to choose ATI or NVIDIA.

I just did a web search for Sapphire Warranty and the results were quite disturbing. Many customers across various sites reporting that Sapphire does not like to RMA defective cards. Whereas eVGA seems to have a lifetime warranty.

I even found an actual article that verifies this:

Questionable Warranty Practices By Sapphire

Because of that I will choose eVGA instead of Sapphire.
