1) Perhaps you can save some money buy going with a mobo without onboard video
2) You can also look into the fastest ram that your board supports. its not too much more expensive.
3) If you want to game, for your hard drive: SSD > 10K RPM HDD > 7200RPM HDD > 5400/5900 RPM "green" HDD

Congratulation to your first computer. How can you build a computer? Is you a professional?

I'm kind of confused as to where the rest of the posts went as well. Now I can't remember what we were talking about

But it looks good
