The Final Choosing process

Man, this is probably the slowest task I have ever taken in my life: trying to build a new PC.

I have gathered two final versions. Tell me what you think if you will...

Final Version 1:
(Snowmann's version) Recommended by Snowmann
Item Numbers on Newegg.com:
N82E16835109011;N82E16835999110; N82E16822144118;N82E16813127166; N82E16817103920;N82E16819103379

I know it is missing Case, RAM, Video Card, and CD RW; I have no freaking idea. More I ask people, more I get confused. That is especially true with RAM. By the way, Video card has been decided: it is Sapphire ATI 7500 whether I like it or not. I have to go with it whether I like it or not. So, no Comment on Video Card please...

Final Version 2:
(Jim Shaddy's version)
Item Numbers on Newegg.com:
N82E16835109113;N82E16822148017;
N82E16813127166;N82E16817163007;
N82E16819103379
and the fans/cooler/sinker
http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/fr...cpu-tri-05.html
http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/frozencpu/fan-77.html

This one too is missing Ram, Case, and CD RW. Video card is no longer relevant.

For the case, the selections are:
(I like the clear ones or the window ones.)
