Your board is much nicer than this one.

Oh, well thanks for the compliment. I still am unsure exactly what RAID is though. I know my board supports it, but im not exactly sure what it is.

And ya, get the EP43/45-UD3L mobo, you may pay a bit more, but in the long run, its a rock solid P43/45 mobo. Just my 2 coppers....
is there a list that has vt support ?

Alright then, I retract my statement. I've never had a problem with my Antecs but if it is a decent brand, the price is slightly better. Looks like a solid build.

raid is taking 2 hd's and making them act as one. so it essentially doubles the speed of the slowest drive (thats raid 0 at any rate)

*****
I've setup an alternative build based on your guys suggestions. Remember she wants to watch hd and doesn't want the computer to be slow. So do you think Intel GMA HD 4500 can do this? I also added her a 19" widescreen LCD monitor and the computer comes in at $440 before shipping (over a $100 saving and has a monitor) See what you think of the following:

You go from HD4850 overkill to thinking you don't need a videocard at all? What the heck? As I said before, go with a 4670. Even a 4650 will handle HD video well. Chances are onboard graphics will not handle HD video, plus it will eat up RAM, and make the system generally slow.

Jeeze, if your not going to give her a videocard you might as well just send her to Best Buy to get a computer...

Edit: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218091190691
It's a Dell, basically it's your build exactly.

NOTE: I am NOT saying you should have her buy a system instead of building her one. The point I'm trying to get across is that the main point of building a system yourself is so that you can use a quality power supply and know that you will have enough room in the case / enough power to supplement a video card. If you don't include a discrete video card in the build, she's basically no better off than if she walked into worst buy and bought something.

I would go for a discrete GPU just to be on the safe side. Through a 4550 or a 4670 in there and you'd be golden.
