if u want a western digital hd, best buy sells them for 50 dollas, 120 gig. at my local best buy, they've been at that price for about a month now. that seems like it would save u 30 bucks.... u can put that towards led lights or whatever. ahah

You don't need that D-Link ethernet adaptor because your mobo already has Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000)...

if you are a gamer (like me) then DO not get a cheap card like I did, you will regret it. granted the 9600 is not that bad (better than my old 9200, thats for sure) it will not run todays games as well as you want. the 6600 GT is the best bang for your buck, you really can't go wrong with a 6600 GT, just make sure you get an evga or so good brand like that.
