One last thing, you still never told me what power supply I need. I am still looking around for a better case (since this will be a gaming computer, i'm rethinking the case situation - better cooling and more fan slots can make it so I can overclock it eventually?). Anyways, just need to know what power supply is required for all this! Thanks.

Regards,
Infinite

Edit: Don't worry, i'm getting second, third, forth, and fifth opinions from various places and knowledgeable friends.

True AMD is thought to be better by many, but no one will every be able to make a definite decision.

Here's a good case:

It comes with 4 fan mounts and plentry of drive bays

It is a very nice Setup, however I would switch the P4 3.2Ghz to an Athlon 64 as its gets better performance on every game and its faster on some tasks also.
