Just gonna say one thing, go ahead and spend an extra 10 dollars on the graphics card and get something like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130020,

It has 4 more pixel pipelines, and uses GDDR2, the performance you will get from that 7300 is not great by any stretch.

You're spending money in the wrong departments.

Case: (personal preference) I can suggest you something but I don't know if you'll like it
CPU Cooler: Good Choice
Hard Drive: Good Choice
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227143
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128017
Processor: Good Choice
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130062

This is less than your setup.

If you want to spend +$60, I'll send you a link for 2GB memory.

how about this

memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146566

and i'll go with the gigabyte motherboard. but the video card for me is fine as it is, i don't play a lot of games mostly do video editing and music editing things like that, i will go with the evga card. for the hard drive whats the big difference between WD and seagate? for the cooler i have heard nothing but good things for the cooler i choose and i will stick with that. also my budget is at most $800

If your doing alot of video editing and music editing, youre going to need more than a gig of ram, thats a fact.

The diffrence between the perp drives and the reg. western digital drives are that the perp drives are faster. I read it somewhere, but theyre comparable to Raided raptors if you do raid them.

And the 7300 is a terrible card, even for video editing, you should get a 7600GT, minimum.

Also, with that gigabyte motherboard, you wont be able to overclock very high, with the motherboard i suggested, you will because it uses the nforce4 chipset. =)
