Default Building my first computer, any input is greatly appreciated.

I'm not a complete newb when it comes to building but I've never gone and done it myself.

Over the next month or two I'm just going to buy 2 or 3 parts out of every paycheck or so, but I'm not sure what brand and all that stuff to buy.

I want to stick strictly with www.newegg.com if possible, since I've always had great service with them.

This weekend I want to pick up a PSU (also not sure how many watts I'll need), case, and mobo (Intel please). So far I've been leaning towards Antec on the PSU and case. Unbiased opinions would be great, and I am completely unsure about the mobo.

Since I am kind of a novice looks and all that don't really matter, I'm out for putting together a killer comp, with the best bang for my buck.

Any input or suggestions on where to go or if I'm just completely stupid about going with Antec or whatever else I say would be great. I really don't have any input to go on besides forums online. None of my friends are into building comps and all that. Thanks.

Heres the Case:

You should get a nice beafy 500watt PSU, and get an ASUS MB, or a 64bit mobo and 64bit processor if u want the best.
Also go for a Radeon 9800xt card and corsiar dual channel ram.

And this for a processor:

Funny how people respond to threads about hacking AOL and Hotmail to flame the guy, but wont supply me with a little input on something this forum is about

Edit: BTW thanks Jeremy

Do some research,on for example what a mbd will accept,Get a cpu that will fit,better still buy an "upgrade kit" Case/pws Mbd/cpu.
Then study the audio,video and ram options for it.
No internal audio or video is my best advice though.
