Default new build

I'm working on a new build and thought I would get some input let me know what you think. Also need heatsink and fan any suggestions of what and where?

All the hardware is compatible, and would certainly deal with any modern games if you have the right graphics card - like a 128MB Radeon 9600XT or 128MB 9800 Pro.

Both versions of graphics card are AGPx8 and are dropping in price dramatically.

Asus A7N8X-E-Deluxe
AMD Athlon XP 3200+ *400 FSB* Barton (2.2GHz)
ThermalTake Volcano 11+ Xaser Edition Air Cooling
1024MB Corsair TwinX XMS 3200 (Dual Channel 2x512) 2-3-2-6

That looks pretty good, I am assuming that your gonna be doing some mid-level gaming on that machine.

I think that this is a decent HSF:
