here is my final decision of my components
if you have any suggestion please post them
AMD athlon 64 3800+ socket 939
MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD
Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 ATX12V 550W Power Supply
OCZ Enhanced Latency 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200)
eVGA Geforce 7600GT CO 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16
i already have everything else, this is just an upgrade. but i was wondering will i need any extra cooling for the processor and video card? and also will all this fit in a mini tower?

All of that looks good, but that motherboard will most likely not fit a mini tower. You may want to look in the Micro ATX category of motherboards. Also, what's your current RAM?

Nice work on the choice of the Antec TruePower series... I favor them.... Everything should work fine, and also have the potential for more upgrades in the future... more ram, better video card. Should last more than a few years.

As far as the Minitower goes, YES, the motherboard WILL fit in a mini-tower as long as it is an ATX minitower.... Such as THESE

Good luck with your build!!!
