First rig coming soon...
 
So after a lot of reading/talking/mind changing, here's what I'm looking at. I want to do this for around a grand, money's an issue. It'll mostly be used for watching movies (not those kind), and the only game I expect to play is CS: Source. Here's what I'm at right now:

Gigabyte GA-965G-DS3
E4300 Core 2 Duo
Buffalo Firestix 2GB Dual Channel 800
Thermaltake 500W
Seagate 320GB 7200.10 3.0Gb/s
EVGA 7600GS 512MB
Thermaltake Swing Case

Other Crap:
Asus DVD burner
MX400 mouse
Windows Vista 64-bit

I'm looking at $960 before rebates/tax/shipping. Just wondering if there's anything I should tone down or drop more money on.

id drop down on the harddrive and get a better graphics card, like 7800gt or something like that... ive seen tests where the 6800gt beats the 7600gs hands down...

Either that, or a 7600GT is a decent upgrade from the GS, and it's still really cheap.
