Looks good to me, but two points:
  • You'll want to look at AMD instead of Intel if this is a gaming rig - if it's not then Intel is fine
  • You don't seem to have chosen a graphics card? Either that or you just forgot to list it.

Oops, forgot a graphics card. It came to 490 early in the project and I was all excited that i was saving hundreds of dollars but I had forgotten a cd drive, hard drive, and now a video card. lol. So I should get an AMD processor? I had trouble finding cheap processors. Can anyone help me out witha processor and video card? 128mb is fine for a video card.

I would reccomend a Nvidia video card just because most of the games these days support Nvidia better and have some deal with them lol (just kiddin. hehehe) but seems lots of people have less problems with games with Nvidia video cards. jsut my .02 but I have nver had a problem with my ATI Radeon in my other computer.
