i would recommend getting the 680i chipset.

with that kind of budget, why dont you throw two 150 gb western digital raptors in raid 0? 300gb of raptor in raid 0 > one 320 gb drive imo

also def get the 8800gtx. its well worth the money. just look up some benchmark, its insane.

as for memory, i would prob get a little bit better brand. patriot seems more like budget ram than high performance.

other than that, it looks pretty good. maybe a larger psu.

You can buy aftermarket CPU and SYSTEM Temp Monitoring Units that fit in CD/DVD rom drives and maybe 3.5" drives as well but i'm not sure on the 3.5" drives

depends. if you plan to ever sl-i i would go 650w(continous, not peak) minimum. but if you only plan to run one card you should be just fine w/ the one you have.

Oh, lol thanks, I'm thinking of going for a 600W if i ever do sl-i I can always just get another PSU.

Last question I hope: Will all these parts work together?

Uh you said you were getting the ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe? I looked on newegg and that is a socket AM2 motherboard. You need an LGA 775 socket motherboard to be compatible with the E6600.
