Default First PC build, Hardware listed inside (any advice?)

This is my first build so I'm just looking to see if there is any substitutions I should look at and/or is there any conflicting hardware?

Any tips would be much appreciated.

how do you forget the processor. i was laughing but then you found your mistake and it happens. i forgot ram but fixed it before anyone saw it.

and your psu might not be enough for the vcard + the rest.

how are you going to install your OS if you dont have a harddrive?

ps, you forgot a hardrive.

ps, if you dont need one hell of a HDD get a simple 80gb like this

I just bought parts. My Motherboard PCI slots don't align with my case slots.

Get a better PSU. At least 500W.

ok i no that wont be your final build,

but rethink the RAM and rethink the PSU like 550 or 650Watt or somehting like that and also you dont have a CU i no u noticed that,

Sorry about the OP, I was really really stoned. Anyways, I switch things up a bit because I was a little over my budget. This is my final setup. I'm not looking to raise the price whatsoever, but is there any substitutions that I might want to take a look at? Advice on anything? Will 2gb memory be enough to run Vista smoothly? Should I go for more?

What exactly is your budget, if you can, shell out some more on the video card, the 8500GT really isn't very powerful. It'd be great if you could get the 8800GT, but if that's out of your reach, you could go with an 8600GTS or even an ATI/AMD equivalent.

Oh, and, if you're set on an AMD system get this processor instead.

At checkout use this promotional code 'EMCAGBABC', it's 40 dollars off and free shipping, making it come out to 75 dollars, a couple dollars less than the 5200+ you have listed there. Offer only lasts until tomorrow though I'm afraid.
