Right on!

I already ordered the Corsair Ram, the Intel Core 2 Duo D6600. However for the HDD I got the 250 GB version. I do not need 320 GB seeing as how I also have an ex HDD.

For mobo I'll go with: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188019

I agree with you on the Optical and the Case.

that is indeed a good motherboard, but I would only suggest it if you plan on getting SLI, otherwise, the P5B Deluxe is a much better board

the P5B Deluxe is a nice board, but look towards the ASUS P5K Deluxe (MAKE SURE IT IS THE P5K AND NOT P5K3 AS THEY ARE DIFFERENT) instead, don't know if newegg has it yet, but plenty of other retailers do. You already bought that Corsair RAM? If you did, the thats fine, but i think you could've done better.
