I'll see if I can find some stuff later, but answers to these questions will help us all.

Do you have a monitor, mouse, keyboard, and/or operating system?
Can you deal with rebates?
What budget are you restricted to? Around $500 maybe?
Are you OK with overclocking?
And this is going to be used for some gaming, correct? (judging by your other threads)

I am assuming you have a monitor. So that is a start. Here is what I can do off the top of my head:
DVD-R
LITE-ON Black 20X DVD+R - $33.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106055
HDD
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM - $79.99
http://secure.newegg.com/Newversion/...sp?submit=view
Video Card
GIGABYTE GV-NX73T256P-RH GeForce 7300GT - $77.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125036
PSU
Antec True Power Trio TP3-550 ATX12V 550W Power Supply - $79.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371002
Motherboard
ASUS P5LD2 R2.0 LGA 775 Intel 945P ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail - $84.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131048
CPU
Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale 1.8GHz - $114.50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115013
Total: $471.45
Then pick out a case and you should be all good.

Although somebody should double check me, I am pretty tired.

RAM:
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM - 31.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146580

That is possibly the worst ram I have seen my entire life. It will do.

idk why you would spend more money on your hard drive and powersupply then your video card. that build doesnt seem to great for 600$ you should go with this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115015

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130082

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102061

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145098

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144415

then you have around 100$ for a case/PSU this system is similar to the one i just built and it plays anygame at high settings without a problem.
