Default New comp

How does this sound:

case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811208010

dvd burner:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151118

Floppy drive:

Hard drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148142

Heat sink:

memory:

mobo:

os:

processcor:

psu:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817148004

speakers:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836150035

thermal paste:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007

video card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125220

total is about $725
Is there any way I can make it cheaper, without sacrificing performance?
Is the bond the thermal paste makes between the cpu and the heat sink permanent?

Dont get a floppy drive, I dont think no one uses them anymore. You can take the speakers down and use some earphones

I use floppies a lot- easier to find one (have a couple dozen sitting on my desk) than my zip disk.

wow that psu is like whoa. color color color. umm yeah i know what you mean about floppies, they come in handy once in a while and you need em for some operations w/ hdd. umm all i could say is maybe different dual channel value ram, i've never used pqi so i'd recommend a more well known brand like corsair or ocz. umm... try to squeeze out just a bit more on the video card, other than that though, everything looks ready to go. i think they made a review on your case at tomshardware.

I would suggest going with AM2. You can get a better rig for about the same price.

I looked aat AMD athlon, and It looks real nice but from what they said about it not handling multi-tasking (what I do constantly) make it un-appealing, and the Pentium IIII I'm looking at outperforming an AMD Athlon X2 by a bit (and is $50 cheaper)
