should get some faster ram (800 it's really cheap) and up the CPU to a e2180 (for the m0 stepping) and toss in a ~$30 cpu cooler like the AC 7

I agree with the 9600GT and PC6400 ram part, but the PSU is more than capable of powering that system.

I'm not sure why some of you were saying I had two cases or 3 tubes of MX-2, because I didn't. I think it's Newegg having problems because when I came back it took the MX-2 off my wishlist.

I changed some stuff too:
The $139.99 8800GS to the $149.99 Palit 9600GT (which has a $40 MIR)
The $38.99 Patriot DDR2-667 to the $44.99 G.skill DDR2-800

I kept the case the same because of the stock fan near the GPU. If I wanted to add a fan to the total cost the recommended case would cost more. Also, I kept the MX-2 because it's non-conductive and there's no break in time.

Remember, I want to keep this cheap because I will only be able to use this rig half of the time, and I will be using my sig rig the other half of the time. (Divorces for the lose)

And still keep those recommendations coming.

he just likes to have spare parts. maybe he would rather have 4x1gb ram than 2x2gb. and maybe he need spare thermal compound in case it dries up... lol.

Where did you hear XFX has bad memory? Never heard that before...
