Question Planning on Building a Computer

Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811208008

Motherboard: ASUS P5ND2-SLI Deluxe Socket T (LGA 775) Nvidia nForce 4 SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131536

Processor: intel Pentium 4 560J Prescott 800MHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116191

Hard Drive:Seagate Cheetah 10K.7 ST373207LC 73GB 10,000 RPM 8MB Cache SCSI Ultra320 80pin Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148047
-I plan on adding a larger 7200 rpm drive later. Will this work out okay? Also OEM means I won't have a manuf. warranty right? Is this okay with a hard drive?

Video Card: XFX PVT45GUDF3 Geforce 6800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150091

Monitor: ViewSonic VX924 Black/Silver 19" 4ms (gray-to-gray); 5ms (typ) LCD Monitor 270 cd/m2 550:1
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116355

Sound Card: CREATIVE Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS GAMER Limited Edition 70SB035000013 8 (7.1) Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102171

RAM: CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145539
-I plan on upgrading this later is this fine for now and then maybe adding a 1GB stick later?

CD/DVD reader/burner: NEC Black 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 16X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2M Cache IDE DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152047
-Again is this okay it is OEM?

Floppy drive: I/O MAGIC Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive Model IFLP02
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16821153104

What kind of cooling device do I need? My case has an 80mm and 2 120mm is that enough?

Is there anything else I need? I am open to suggestions of different brands, products, etc. Also is everything compatible with each other?

Yeah, you'll need another fan or two. That HD will get pretty hot running at 10k. Also, you may not need the sound card. The motherboard already has integrate 8-channel audio.

Do I need something like this?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103147

Or should I just get a couple 80 or 120mm fans?
I am open to brands on either.

For the money, I totally suggest an amd 64 cpu. Maybe a 3200+ or a 3500+. AS for the heatsink, no, that's a heat sink. you should already one that came with the case. Get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118112
hope this helps.

So should I go with something like this?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103531
Will I need to find a different motherboard?

Would you recommend buying from newegg? Like is it secure, cheap prices, warranties with products, etc.? From what I have seen prices are pretty good. And I will go with that fan to. Do you think I need one or two?

Yes! Very nice cpu... I have the 3500+. Yes, you will. But trust me. With the new dual cores out, for amd, all you have to do, to upgrade, is to buy the chip and do a bios upgrade. For intel, you need a whole new mobo. It's good for the long run and amd is a great cpu. Yes, I have bought from newegg numerous times... it's a good place. ALso, floppy's are pretty much obselete. Get a usb mass storage device. Holds many more of them in a lot smaller space. I would say one fan would suffice, unless you want to get two. lol... hopet his helps.

For the scsi drive you need a scsi card, or you could just get a 10k rpm sata drive, or better yet get two and make a nice and speedy raid 0 array.

Also do you think it would be better to get two of these or this plus a larger drive for storage at only 7200 rpm.

EDIT: Which of these would you recommend
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145466
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131540
Or if there is a better one any of you could recommend I would appreciate it. And thanks for all of your help everyone.

definatly. and if you have the cash get two and put them in a raid 0 array. besides scsi is a pain, you have to mess with termination etc.
