Default Going custom, help me build!

Hey this is my first post...I am trying to build my first comp...i have an alienware and i realize now that i should have built a custom comp instead.. but oh well too late. so..i already have kinda got an idea of what i want.. amd processor, nvidia gfx card (hoping to go SLI) and 1 gig of ram or more.. this comp isnt being made to replace my alien, im doing it mostly for fun, and to learn some stuff. my budget is around or below $700 ill be playing games like WoW BF2 CS...the case i want to get is the Antec Super lanboy... monitors keyboards mouse.. etc.. i dont want included now..


here is a list of stuff i have came up with

Mobo

Harddrive

RAM

Processor

Graphics card (2)

Could some of you make suggestions and or improvements to what i have listed?

Thanks guys

I personally say go with one 7600GT. Also, if you have the cash get two GB ram, but thats not neccessairy.

Other then that, great system. How much money are you working with though? Because that will help us know what to suggest better.

Better Pentiums suck nuts slow bus speed and they get hot they suck.
