Thumbs up A New Computer Build

I'm not sure if my other thread got posted, for some reason it said i posted a duplicate thread or something. But now i can't find my thread, so I'm posting another one. I want to know your thouts about this new computer build:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130050
*Updated**Again*http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130020
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220142
*Updated*http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103735

Total price before shipping: ~$440

If you think you can find me a better item for around the same cost tell me so.
Any other advice would be AWESOME!

(I already have a CD/DVD RW DL [etc.], an 80GB WD HDD, a 9GB [old] HDD, 3.5" Floppy Drive, 350watt 12v PSU, Sound Blaster 24-bit, and one loud Case.)

looks pretty good, i would get the 3700 though, because its 1mg L2 Cache instead of 512Kb..and its only 2.2 compared to 2.4 which isnt too much of a loss. i dont kno much about video cards, but that should be fine if your not doing any heavy gaming. the mobo looks pretty good (i dont think it has firewire, so if you need that, there are add on cards for it). thats also a very good memory stick.

im assuming you have the case w/ power supply already?


anyway, what you have there looks to be a solid computer.

It would be awesome if you guys could actually suggest better options, or add some advice from personal experience or something. Or just approve the build so that I know its good.
