Thanks again guys, I really needed the help and I appreciate it. As far as the list goes, just let me know how I did.
the PSU(I know, I said I wouldn't) because I just felt that it would be a LONG
time before I would upgrade anything significant such as a processor that would need the extra
watts. Soo... There it is, the OCZ with $30 rebates, coming to $29.99
