Corsair TWIN2X1024-5400C4

Seagate SATA 300 MB/s 160GB ST3160812AS
Seagate ATA133 200GB (x2)

what do people think about this.
It is well within your interest to uprade to the P5WD2-E. You will get better overclocks now, and hopefully future CPU compatability.

Another thing, instead of the Zalman, look in the Thermaltake Big Typoon. You may already have the Zalman, and it that case, disregard this comment.

I think you can do much better with the RAM. Look at this Patriot stuff (same as mine) here I am running it at 3-3-3-4-3, which is extremely good for DDR2-800. Some other good stuff is G.Skill DDR2-800. It is better to get DDR2-800 for future compatablity and to give you a little more head room with the 920, because it will overclock a ton. Also, you probably want to get 1GB modules.

For your PowerSupply, I have an Antec SmartPower, I like it, but it is not the best. I have heard that their high-end models like the phantom are full of problems. You may want to look into that, and consider the Sunbeam NUUO. And for the price range of that Phantom, you really can't do any better than this OCZ powersupply. I am glad that you realize the importance of a good powersupply !

What video are you planning to get?
