If you get this memory and get another one later you would be better off.
Much better for OC'ing.

I like my current case.

For Power Supplies I choose this one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171018

But now I don't know if I should get the 512MB version or the Turbo 256MB. I'm think the 512MB will serve me better?

The PSU I showed you is much better and with the case I picked it's only $12 more.

Well I'm already $30 over budget so I don't think I can afford to add anymore, let's add up what I currently have...

Dear me $50 over budget, I guess I have to go with the 256MB card which will bring the price to $10 over budget... Sounds good? I got the HIS 256MB X1950Pro now.

I would really try to get this cpu/mobo:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116037
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188017

It's a tiny bit more expensive but they perform nearly the same as fully-fledged Core 2 Duos.. Easy overclock to 3.0ghz and in many games, there's virtually no difference while in some (like CoH) there's only a small difference). Surely much better then the AMD.

And I really don't think you need the 512mb X1950pro.. Just get the 256 for like $50 less or even the 8600gt should do well after an overclock for $100. The 8600gt will max all the games you mentioned except Crysis obviously but I think the 8600 will run it a bit better then the x1950pro (of course not in dx10 mode though) since it tends to excel in newer/shader intensive games. And use that money to get 2gigs of RAM.

Also... I would just buy mouse/keyboard at a local store.. the ones you chose are kinda pricey and I doubt they're any better then ultra cheap ones locally.. Do you really need the floppy/card reader?? You don't need the pci cooler.

$25 difference from the X2 3600+ and TForce 550, I'll stick with the X2 3600+ and TForce 550. Also the 8600GT is only a $5 difference... I'll check into that hold on..

I'll go with the 8600GT it does perform better.

Mow a couple lawns, wash a couple cars.. Not too hard to make enough to get yourself enough to upgrade to C2D and 2 gigs of RAM..

The 1950 I showed is much better.It has a lot better cooler and is clocked at 590/1540 vs the one you picked is 575/1380.If you don't mind loosing the extra slot.It's $25 more and it also exhausts out of the case which will help with your cooling.
