The X-Navigator isn't bad, but make sure you get a fan controller to quiet them or they'll make you deaf after a while.

You need a video card. I think the Xpress 200 chipset has integrated video, but for your system, get a dedicated video card to avoid bottlenecks.

amd is cutting price? damnit! i should have waited coulda got a dual core!

if your case comes with a power supply i would just save it and buy a bigger one, most case power supplys aren't that big and could really be a problem if you end up using 2 videocards in crossfire. i like the BFG tech ones.. they have one it;s like 680 watts or something, has enough power to supply a third world country for a few minuets! i thing it's somewhere around $250

and if you get a chance, with the money you save from getting AMD if you wait until the price cut you could spend the extra dough and get 2 mid level ATI cards and use them in crossfire - really something to think about, like the other guys said before me stay away from intergrated GPUs .... from the stuff your getting i would geuss your using it for gaming so with the processor and RAM and crap you have your fine so a high quality graphics card should be your biggest concern now.

If it was me, i'd go nVidia SLI instead of ATI but thats up to you.

DO NOT BUY AMD UNTIL JULY 24TH IT WILL BE A HELL OF A LOT CHEAPER!j

Don't go too cheap on the mobo
Decide wheater or not you want aftermarket CPU cooler. Thats your choice your decision if you want OC tehn its ideal.
Nvidia from reviews stricly is better with SLI then ATI is with crossfire due to drivers issues. I suggest stick with them, but then again both are really great companies.
Maybe get a bigger HD with this AMD sale comming up

O BTW tell your friends AMD is doing this, you don't want a kid to pay 500 bucks for CPU the next day its 250 That'd be ANNOYING.

Well the integrated vid card will be more than enough for what u are doing. Since u don't play games then I suggest that u don't waste ur money on a good and expensive vid card since the integrated ones can play videos just as well.

Also u might need a bigger hdd, 160GB ain't that much if u are downloading a lot of stuff.
