Smile building a new pc, opinions would be great.

Hello all, its been a while since I have been here, and most probably dont remember me. Anywho, I am working on building a new PC, b/c my 2 year old is starting to hog mine, plus, I thought that it was time for a new one. So if you guys can give me your opinions on my thoughts, and answer a few questions that I have, that would be great.
Ok I will start by posting what I want to do with it. I plan on having my pc and xbox networked, and transfer files between the two. I may also hook my pc up to my 32" every now and then. Oh yeah, I have a few sources that I hook up to my pc currently, for video. Ok, now I will post what I plan on getting, and nothing is set in stone.
proc- 130.00 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-452&depa=1
mb - 98.50 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...123-218&depa=1
mem - 65.50 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-006&depa=1
hd - 115.00
vid - 157.50 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...102-345&depa=1
dvd - 66.99 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...152-029&depa=1
dvd - 37.99 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...106-932&depa=1
case- 54.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...584&CatId=1509
moni- 218.50 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...116-282&depa=0
Mou - 23.99 http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...104-154&DEPA=0
k&m - 33.00 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...126-150&depa=0
DCR - 15.49 http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...162-610&depa=0

Ok, you probably noticed that the HD has been left blank. I was really unsure in this department, b/c of something called a sata drive. The MB will allow a sata drive, but im unsure how this will be set up. I have never used this type of drive. I guess my question would be, if I just hooked this drive up to the MB, would it be recognized, and would windows install just like an IDE HD? I ran across a couple of post that were old, but I thought that I would post my own question, since thats not all I needed from you guys.
Thanks
Charles

Oh yeah, anyone have that MB or installed it before? What did you think about it? I like it b/c of the dual ethernet, and the cables..

hey thanks for the advice,
I checked those out, and had my mind set on one of those. I checked this site out, and thought more about a 754.
