Hey ca va ? Quoi de 9 ? / Hey there! What's up!

WD 500 gig Raid-0, maybe ?

I would choose a better PSU, Corsair or Silverstone

Check for a case with good airflow.

The video card is good unless you want to go X2 or 8800gtx/9800gtx/GX2

You should consider the thermaltake TRUE for better cooling,

The CPU is good !

Ram too !

I personally do not like MSI (had 2 fried board w/o even oc'ing), I would look at DFI, ASUS, Gigabyte.

I have always liked Mushkin ram, but I will be running 32-bit windows what's the point of 4gb is the system will only detect 3.2-3.5?

Guess 3GB should suffice.

Definitely going to look into a different PSU since it seems to be the main area of interest.

Any recommendations for the Mobo. I was looking into ASUS's new EPU tech, suggestions to fit my hardware?

XIGMATEK stuff looks great. Thanks for the heads up.
