Cool My First Computer Build

All right, I want to build a HTPC this summer for slight gaming. I am hoping I can order all of my parts from www.newegg.com tonight. was wondering if this stuff sounds all right for what I want to do:

- ASPIRE X-QPACK-AL/420 Black/Silver Computer Case
- MSI RS480M2-IL Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
- CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual
- AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor
- MSI NX6600GT-TD128E Video Card

All that for a grand total of $578.49

I allready have a hardrive and a dvd writer so that is not included in the price.....................................SOOOO tell me what u think!!!!!!!!!!

I'm thinking...it's not that great a machine but will do.

But I wonder....Why in hell do you want micro ATX?!

O i wanted micro atx because it saves space and would look better than a regular atx computer and yeah my hardrive is a 160 gb maxator so im pretty sure it runs 7200 rpm or if u really think micro atx is a bad choice for my build than recommened me a atx motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-K8NS ULTRA SOCKET 939. I used it for my first build on sunday and am using it now. Very stable I hear and has Dual BIOS Feature!
