Opinions on future build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking to build my first computer, and would like a few opinions on whether or not I am making good choices on the parts. Overall I am looking to spend right around $800, and am looking at $789 with the parts I have selected.

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115037

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811103010


MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130180

Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...L1A-_-14102810

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231144

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148288

Optical Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151171

Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817189008

OS: XP Pro, possibly Vista Ultimate in the future, but we'll have to see.

Any opinions would be welcome, and if you have any suggested changes to the parts I will definitely consider them. Thanks for any help.

Personally, if you can fit it in your budget, I'd get vista x64 (any edition but basic) and 4gb of ram.
