kk bout the e6400 it is still very good just thought youwant a better option

also dunno about the dell recovery disk it may just give the adress of the recovery partition

yeah the external sound should be ok i would get an 8800 but there are not any games supported by dx 10 yet so there is not a lot of point

that vid card is very good ,

And you CAN use your Dell windows xp cd to install, I did on my build, I just had to call Microsoft for an activation number.

Yeah, a 550 watt PSU will be plenty. You'd really only need like a 400-450 watt, but that would be cutting it close.

As for the case, I'm a Lian-Li fan. Check this out:

It'll have great airflow, very good for overclocking, but it's not very flashy. I like cases with windows to show off my work personally, and I have this one:

Yes, Lian-Li cases are extremely easy to build in. They're very roomy, space for plenty of stuff. Also, they have these really nice hand-screws so you don't need to be hunting around for a screw driver every time you want to open it up.
