Default New Computer

So guys, Im planning to build a new computer by the 2 month of next year. My budget is $1100. I have already chosen some parts out. I dont need optical drives, monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. Look at what ive got:

Case: Tsunami Dream:

ABIT AN8 SLI Mobo:

AMD Athlon64 3200+ Venice:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819103534

Crucial Ballistix (x2):

Hitachi Deskstar 80GB SATAII (x2):
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822145082

Now, i need a video card and a psu, any suggestions? Im thinking about going with a OCZ powerstream, but im not going to buy from newegg. Shipping is killing me.

Thanks.

Wait around and get the items on sail with discounted shipping rates.. They always have them as free shipping or special saver rates but I tell you that I have yet to really find anyone else that sells for the prices of newegg. I know of a couple of other sites that can see close to newegg with no shipping charges. I buy a lot of cases from them and they always work out about 10 cheaper that way. and if you can find the exact parts then onk too
