Default 2nd Build, Check B4 I Order...

Well my dad is giving me some $$ to get a 2nd build. Here is what I got, tell me what you think:

CASE: Bought one w/ a 400W PSU from a local store

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 ATX
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813128286

PROCESSOR: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice 939
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819103537

RAM: 2x512MB PQI Turbo PC3200
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820141212

VIDEO CARD: eVGA 128MB AGP 8x 6600GT 500/900
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130220

CD/DVD: Lite-On 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16827131410

HD: Have a 60GB Maxtor that I am switching over

OS: Windows XP Home w/ SP2
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16837102151

EXTRAS
------------------

2x Rosewill 80mm Case Sleeve Fans
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835200001

Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Paste
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835100007



So, what do you guys think? Does it look compatible? The only thing I am worried about is I wont have enough connectors for the temp gauge, fans, power button, USB, and VGA fan connector.

Note that this will be my first full build, I wonder if I can pull it off... Any detailed sites on building your own computer? I mean recent ones..

I only see the PCI-E version of it by leadtek, and it is the same clock speed, except mem is 1000mhz.

Now, will I have enough connectors for all my parts? That is the only thing that worries me.

I hope Newegg has fast shipping, I want my build fast

This is how I would do it:

Mobo: $82

CPU: Same

Ram: $86

Video Card: $158

CD Drive: Same

I think you would like this setup better.
Motherboard is nForce 4 Ultra.
PCI-E is the future so why buy something obsolete.
Ram is your choice, but the Mushkin seems to have a better rep.
