Looks pretty good. If you can afford it though, upgrade to a Socket 939 motherboard with a Socket 939 version of the CPU you have picked out. Get the Asus A8V Deluxe mobo or the Abit AV8 to go with your socket 939 CPU.

my suggestion is dump the seagate and get a better hd. If funds support it , look into the Maxtor line, i find that they will give more gig for the buck and a better warrenty.

nvd fn by ...good question , different manufactures i guess.

Yeah go with the 939 socket. It will offer MUCH more expandability in the future.
