get the p35-ds3l if you dont need raid and a lot of sata connectors.

Im not sure about your psu though...im not saying its bad, its just that idk anything about it.

I do know that the corsair 520w hx will be great though.

and if your looking for a sound card, i can give you mine for $20shipped.
Its a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4...comes with a remote.

Well I have an HP and XP was preinstalled so can't do that and I don't know about the p35-ds3l not that I have anything againsit the board, but it dosent seem for me that it's good for future hardrives and I will be looking to do a raid 0. As for overclocking most likly I won't do it since someone told me a proverb on it I can't remeber the whole story but it comes out that the mobo will not last long. Plus I'm a first time builder so I have no clue how to do overclocking aswell as raid 0 but will research on how to do it. I just know basic stuff. I might have to downgrade some of the parts since I'm only 14 and it's going to be tough getting all the money for it. Oh I just found out I miss spelled floppy lol :P

then get the DS3R...it's not much more, is essentially a better board, and does support RAID. The DS3P is a good board but the extra PCI-E slot which is gimped at x4 anyway just isn't worth the extra cash.

The 8800GT uses less watts than the other 8 series cards, a Corsair 550VX will handle that system just fine.
