Also, just out of curiosity, what is that mouse pad you're getting? What are the benefits of it?

It's a better mousepad in the sense that it allows for better pricision and control. I've personally used of 15 different mousepads.

Some are plastic type, like the Steelpad S & S. It works wonder, especially if your a low sens. user.

The 5L is worth every penny.

I also think that power supply will do. I mean, it has 500 watts, and its from antec. Isn't that good enough?

EDIT: Is that memory actually better than the one I had first mentioned?

2ND EDIT: I've decided to go with this SLI Cert. Ready 550 Watt Antec PSU instead:

Thanks for the info on the mousepad. I guess I never realized that the mousepad is that important.

The memory I mentioned is very good stuff. Overclocks very well and with that rebate is really a tremendous deal. If I was going to get a 2GB kit, that is the kit I would get. Everyone that uses it seems to love it. Also, Corsair is getting out of the high performance RAM business from what I've been hearing. I think for the price and the performance, the OCZ 2GB Platinum can't be beat. Either the ram you chose at first or this one will do very well. Just wanted to point out a very good deal and to open the floor to another recommendation.

I think that PSU you changed your mind to will do very well. I think it will be worth the extra $20 or $30.

Good choice on switching to that PSU; it will be a lot more reliable; especially if you plan on getting SLI in the future.

I also would of recommended the 7800GTX, but it seems everyone else has already said that.

Just though I might add the Razer Copperhead is worth every penny in my opinion, so stick with it . Though I'm sure, there are many people that would tell you it's an incredible waste of money. Also, you probably would rather have speakers, but I would prefer some quality 5.1 background-sound reducing headphones over the speakers that you picked out. Just a thought, though.

Copperhead ROCKS. <3.

Anyhow, about the speakers. I'm a big e-sports athelete/gamer, and I already have headphones. Steelsound 5h's. Free from www.gotfrag.com in a contest I won.

Also, in my opnion, and many of the competiive gamers, 5.1 or surround sound head phones in general are not good. They can confuse you.

So now I have a question...did changing your mind of gfx card give you enuf lee-way to get a 4400+ Dual Core instead...if so then most games right now won't take advantage of it...BUT...I'd say any NEW games that come out will deffinately take advantage of the Multi-Thread capabilities of a Dual-Core...Just my opinion...TY

I don't think its worth it.

Almost $200 more for 1 more MB of cache and 200 more mhz that I can easily achieve by overclocking? No thanks.

BTW. I've changed my WHOLE SETUP. LOOK AT IT AGAIN ON THE FIRST POST.

If you can see, I have decided to go with a 3800 + x2 dual core, a 250 GB wd HD SATA and an x-plorer case.

I think you might want a more high quality case.
For a few bucks more, go with some better fans for case cooling. The quieter the better. Antec makes some real good and quiet fans ( 120's).
7800GTX's are the way to go if you've got the funds.

More high quality case?

Isn't the one I have fine? I have heard aspire is a good company.

And about the fans, that case, which I think is fine, and I like because it matches the lighting on my mouse and keyboard, only accepts 80 MM fans, hence the aspires that I think are of great quality and match the cases lighting.

And yes, the 7800 GTX is what I'm going with. An EVGA for that matter.
