For RAM, I would suggest you get 2 of these instead of that XMS:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146546

Thats GREAT RAM!

Power Supply....I would get one with at least 500Watts...especially since you have a 6800 up in there.

Hard drive, Seagate barracuda is a great series! Although its SATA150 which your motherboard is compatible additionally with, but SATA II is faster! So this hard drive is great, cheaper, and faster! And most of all compatible!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152020

Great hard drive, the samsung spinpoint P is what I have, VERY quiet.

Other than those things, this PC looks nice! Although I believe you are using stock AMD Heatsink and fan. In that case, don't use the thermal pad and use some arctic silver 5, the best thermal paste on the market:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007

Also, that will build you a great computer. You will probably want some case fans. And if you want the case inside neater and betetr airflow i suggest using rounded IDE cables.

Nice choices.

On the bottom of your AMD heatsink will be a silver paste, rub it off, thats the thermal pad.

Then, with arctic silver 5 you can (once your cpu is placed in the socket) just put a small drop on the middle of the cpu and when you put on the heatsink it will even it out hopefully. If not then you can use the edge of a credit card to apply it. A thin Layer.

Yeah! I built my first PC 2 months ago and built it in about 2 hours. Had it running perfectly just a few days later ( didn't have a keyboard )
