Sweet, good luck with your build. I remember my first build, about a year ago. Don't freak out and just stay calm, I got wayyyyyyyy to worked up over things that weren't actually problems.

BTW, I have the most hilarious video of the computer's first boot, and I freak out because the CPU fan isn't spinning when it boots up for a second. It's so funny, and then I croon over it when it works. Didn't know I did that until I watched the vid.

Looks good. You could easily downgrade your PSU if you want to save money for a monitor or something.

yeah i was contemplating heavily on that, and been asking around here a lot.
i could change my CPU, MB and PSU combo for a QX9650, Gigabyte EP35 DS3P and a corsair 620w. but they told me to stay with this build

PICTURES POSTED! Well temporarily, been looking around for the camera then found out my brother has it

Just wondering why the 8800GT? Given that the board supports crossfire, a 3870 (add another later) would make more sense. I agree that the 8800Gt is best bang for the buck (I've owned a pair in SLI) but the 3870 and 3850 cards are not far behind.
