Default Help me build my computer

1. CPU - right now Core 2 Quad is up on the high top line model. So I'm looking at one of the cheapest place i found.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017 Price: $285
This site is more trustworthy. I will probably rather choose to buy from this site while from the site below, it is tempting also.

http://www.antaresdigital.com/custom...cat=419&page=1 Price: $272
This site is found through pricewatch.com which I don't know how great they are with customer support, shipping, and handling. Small business as it looks may not be the best quality of work you want to relate yourself to, but their price is the cheapest found ever. Is it better to choose to buy from here over Newegg???

2. Ram - 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) is the popular ram for DD2. My investigation goes that it is cheaper to get 1 GB ram of a total of 4 GB rams than to get either a 2 GB stick or a 4 GB stick.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211062 Price: $24 each (total of $96 for 4 rams of 1 GB.)

3. Motherboard - Which motherboard is the best one below to choose from???

Intel BOXDG33FBC LGA 775 Intel G33 ATX Intel Motherboard (requires a video card)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813121100 Price: $110

ECS P35T-A LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard (requires a video card)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813135059 Price: $75

4. Harddrive - 500GB I choose to decide on buying at least a 200GB HDD and my reason is that many programs nowadays are taking alot of space. For example like Microsoft Office 2007 and Vista are all above 1 GB. Please be careful to check which HDD is compatible to the motherboard you are buying. I trust Seagate HDD only and don't buy any re-certified or refurbished.

Seagate ST3500631NS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148286 Price: $120 (free shipping)

5. Video Card Hardcore gamers can find better ones than that first one below. So if you are into the hardcore gaming stuff, choose a 256-bit video card. As for me, I believe maybe a 128-bit can do the work because I'll go cheap for the sake of my interest is heavily on computer applications than games.

6. Case - Find one you like externally and one that will plan to fit your hardware stuff.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119129 Price: $80 (after mail-in-rebate it will be $50)

Help me with finding a power supply that fits with my motherboard. I don't know much about it and I'm looking for something that is able to hold the power of my computer. Also please comment on the setup. Will it all work and function with all the parts listed?
