I would also put a seagate 7200.10 perp drive in there (better performance) and a Xclio 500 watt psu (read the forums its highly recommended and only $50)

AND for the same price a Biostar TForce 550 which OC's great.

AND i'd get 667 mhz ram and save some cash since at stock 667mhz speeds (333mhz x 2) the brisbane would be at 3.16 ghz so the 800 mhz ram isnt' needed. And the $25 to $30 saved from downgrading the RAM i'd up to a 8600 GT for around $100 to $110 (its a better card and has more shader's)

We're all thinking alike with just a few tweaks according to taste... here's mine in text form... many of thses parts are listed in the newegg pix above:

DEVICE : DESCRIPTION AND PART # date 07/31/07 PRICE REBATE S&H
PSU : Rosewill RD550-DC2-SL-SLV 550W ....... 70.00 7.68
Case : Athenatech A301/BS mATX 400W* ........ 45.00 15.99
Case Fans: Apevia 120mm CF12-S 1700 RPM x2 ...... 9.00 6.24
MoBo : BioStar TF7025-M2 uATX ............... 66.00# 6.13
CPU : AMD X2 3600+ Brisbane ................ 66.00# 0.00
Thermal : Arctic Silver AS5 Syringe 1cc ........ 6.00 4.99
Memory : G-Skill 1Gbx2 PC6400 444-12 "PK" ..... 105.00 4.99
HDD : Western Digital #WD1600AAJS OEM ...... 50.00 5.94
Opt. Drv : LITE-ON 20x LH-20A1S Sata ............ 34.00 6.13

MOUSE : Rosewill RM800P PS/2 800dpi .......... 5.00 4.99
Floppy : NEC FD1231H-302 OEM .................. 7.00 4.99
FD Cable : OKGear RC18S-OEM ..................... 2.00 4.99
TOTAL(16): ...................................... 578.00 578.00 68.00
* toss the PSU # = $10 Combo

shipping is FedEx and is a complete box: no monitor or o/s
You can save some bling if you just wanna surf and watch TV... sub the 7050 model MoBo for the 7025, toss the Video card, and step up to the 'HZ' version of the GSkill mem. This can be oc'd very nicely, and you save about $75.
