Looks like a great build.

Remember if your drive is PATA the board only has one PATA connector, so
your going to have to do a master/slave setup with your drives.


I would look into a 7200.10 Perpendicular recording seagate drive

If you can spare a lil more money.


And if your looking to overlcock, the E6400 has a higher speed to start with an an additional multiplier

What capacity do you want for the HD?

And cases are mostly based on preference. Definitely get one with some decent airflow though. And would you prefer LEDs or not? What's your price range for just the case?

The HDD can be anywhere from 100GB-250GB.

No LEDs.

And I am trying to keep both of those together to add up to about $200ish.

Alrighty then.

I have this case for my planned build, (if I ever get to ordering the last few parts...) and it's really cool. Good airflow, it looks nice, and is very easy to work with. It's big and it's mostly hand screws. You can't really see it in the pictures, but it has a very nice looking brushed aluminum finish. $120.

So get this $75 250 GB hard drive, and you'll be set at your price:
