Default A little help with building my computer...

Ok, as always when I am in dire need of expert advice, I have fallen back upon good old computerforums, once again! This time, instead of continually accepting criticism for my terribly outdated 2.6ghz P4 system, and my below-par ATI x1300 pro, I have come for advice for a complete build! That's right, I am asking for advice on a NEW COMPUTER (yay). Enough with the formalities, I will cut to the chase: I have already selected most of the parts which (I believe) will provide me with a decent gaming computer. My part list (with comments) is as follows:

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103776

MOBO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128034

RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211066

HardDrive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136075

DVD Burner - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136119

Case/PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147001

Video Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130062

As you can see, this is a BUDGET build. Any help/comments on ANY of these parts would be great, as this is my first build and I don't want to bust my wallet or be disappointed, either.

MUCH thanks in advance,
~Marshillboy~

Updated CPU to Brisbane and HD to Western Digital. Still would like some more good input on a good video card and case/PSU. Thanks for the input so far.

I updated the MOBO to a nicer GIGABYTE one, it's $75, but it seems like a really good one. I also found some nicer RAM, seems to have better reviews. I think I found a nice case and video card as well.

My sincere apologies in advance about the triple post, but this thread needs bumping and I would very much like input on my parts list on my first post. Could somebody merge these latter three posts? Thanks for all the help so far, btw!
