Not so sure about the motherboard. Also the which power supply is recommended by you guys?

Yeah I forgot about the PSU, thought it came with the case but I was looking at the wrong one >.< As for the RAM I agree and I bookmarked a link about it but forgot about it. Here it is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...-L1C-_-20145184 As for the videocard I left that out cause I have a spare 8600 GT that I could always use to save some money. I already have the keyboard/mouse/monitor from my old setup that I would like to also use. I'll take a look at the suggestions you gave me, thanks guys. More comments are welcome too. Edit: I did a power supply calculator check on the components I plan to use in this rig. And it says I need a recommended 386W to power this. Do you guys know any good 400-500W power supplies that are reliable and can fit my NZXT case?
I finally got tired of my Dell system that I paid 1000+ bottlenecking my upgrades and wanted to start over. This time I plan to build my computer, which I hear saves a lot of money. Looking for some advice on this, all comments are appreciated. This rig equals to about $555 w/o tax and shipping. 1-Motherboard 2-Case 3-RAM 4-CPU 5-CD Drives 6-SATAHard Drive 7-VideoCard (Already got that down, XFX 8600GT Factory OC'd 256mb) 8-Soundcard (Already got that down, Razer Barracuda Soundcard) 1-ASUS P5K DELUXE/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail 169.99 2-The NZXT LEXA 99.99 3- OCZ Platinum Revision-2 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Dual Channel Memory (2x1024MB) 44.99 4-Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Processor 169.99 5-Lite-On PLDS DVD-ROM/CD-RW Retail Combo Drive - 52x32x CD-R/RW, 16x DVD-ROM, Black 24.99 6-Western Digital Caviar SE 160GB Hard Drive - 7200, 8MB, SATA-300, OEM 44.99
