Here are the Best cards for the price right now

$400 = Nvidia 8800GTS (369.99 after rebate)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130071

$220 = ATI X1950XT

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102067

$170 = ATI X1950 Pro

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102061

$115 = 7600 GT

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150182


Soon ATI is going to release its next series of Cards the R600 , and its going to be badass.

So if you can afford to wait i would wait for them.

Looks good so far but i alreay answered your question in Post #11, your drive will work as long as you get a board that supports them

such as the one i already posted it supports 1 x ATA100 up to 2 Devices

Here is the link to it a second time and the Ram to go with it.

board

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820141062


PATA is an old technology and many boards only have them because many CD-rom drives use the interface.

If you have more than 2 devices you need on PATA i would look for a motherboard with 2 X IDE connectors for up to 4 devices.

you have your Own Hard drives and CD/DVD drives correct?

and you can use the onboard sound that comes with the motherboard just fine.

And of coarse you gotta find a case that you like, thats personal preference, as long as its ATX you will be fine.
That RAM won't work with that board, too high voltage.
