Default Computer Upgrade

Hey everyone, I would just like to share what I am going to be getting this summer. I'm pretty positive about everything but im not sure about the RAM. I'm looking to spend around $500.

Power Supply
Processer
RAM
Case
Motherboard

Edit- I copyed it from another forum. Too lazy to rewrite it.

Go with the AMD 64 3200+ venice core. I think its only like 20 dollars more and it supports SSE3.

ya, venice is better core than winchester... and i wouldn't get that PSU, it's powmax and there is no reason to get that many watts, i would say you look for a thermaltake on newgg... other than that, i like your setup... ram is fine unless you plan on overclocking, and if you do, look for the corsair XMS series, they cost a little more though...

by the way, are you buying a video card?
