Default Help me decide on parts

I'm willing to build a pc, and the budget is $700. I want at least 2GB of ram and a 7600GT(~$300 for both). Please give me some ideas on the cpu, motherboard, case etc. Already have the monitor and OS.

-EDIT-
See post #7

if you are not scared of open box specials, you can get some good deals...

mobo... ASUS P5NSLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI Intel Edition ATX Intel Motherboard

and processor...dual core

not a bad start for about $150...

The computer would be used for some mild gaming, and for programming, playing movies and things like that.

Personally and its just personal choice, i wouldnt go with that CPU for gaming mild or not, id go for an AMD Dual Core, or Core Duo , will bump up the price but im not a huge fan on p4's.

Everything looks good, If u wanted to lower the price abit u cud go for different ram. Thats high performance and the rest of the components are mid level. Seems a bit overkill , not that i wudnt like the ram

What is that pc in your specs? Try to get a core 2 duo if you can. but you might need to save up $100 more if you want one, but it will be worth it.
