The Athlon 64 3000+ Venice is probably the best of the 64 CPU's imo, cause you can overclock it to the top-of-the-range one quite easily.

DFI motherboards are good for overclocking and have a lot of features, so yeah, that's good too.

I don't think you need a 500-Watt PSU though, unless you're buying a powerful graphics card. 400-Watt should do.

OCZ is supposed to be the cheaper alternative to Corsair and has overclocking potential from reviews i've read.

I think you've got it all right.

I'm not an expert at HDD's, so i can't say, but for RAM, i think OCZ is cheaper but just as good, so i'd go with OCZ. Read some reviews on www.ebuyer.com

the samsung spin points are one of the best hdds. If you want some top quality RAM to OC, get some OCZ platinum Rev.2 they run at 2-2-2-5 timings stock. They cost more though, i think around 130 -140 on newegg.

Haha, I am 14 to and I built my first computer on sunday . It runs perfectly....I forgot one cable....3 pin floppy connector :-/. But after I saw that and plugged it in, everything worked! And I am posting from it right now!

You are smarter than most at first, here at CF alot of people build computers and some people pick different socket CPU's than motherboards and stuff. The building is easy, you'll do fine.

And ownage, I have a samsung spinpoint p sata 150 80GB hard drive and it is awesome! It is amazingly fast and the only hard part was finding the drivers for it so windows would recognize it because my motherboard man. (gigabyte) is too cheap to give me a sata floppy :-/. But they make great motherboards!
