Default My New PC, on its way

I finally orederd my computer. It is as follows:
- Antec Sonata Case w/ TruePower 380w PSU
- ABIT NF7-M w/ IGP, this will hold me off until I can save up for a nice video card
- AMD Athlon Barton XP 2500+, will be overclocked
- Thermaltake Silentboost heatsink/fan
- Arctic Sliver 5
- Corsair XMS Series 512MB, will be ordering another stick when I order my video card
- 80GB Western Digital Special Edition HDD, 8MB cache, etc.
- NEC DVD Burner
- NEC Floppy drive, lol
- Already have Windows XP Pro
- Still need to get black keyboard/mouse, and some speakers, good thing my birthday is coming up soon
- Already have a 19" Samsung Syncmaster monitor
Should be getting my videocard and more ram by end of july, or possibly asking for them for my birthday in August, i don't know if i can wait that long though, i want some summer playtime
