-Is everything compatible?
-Am I missing anything?
-Are the things I currently have worth their price?

Also I have a little over 200 dollars that I could put into it so if there is anything any of you would recommend upgrading please say so.

Check and make sure the fans fit the case. Also for another couple hundred try upgrading to a dual core athlon x2 or throw in another raptor hd in raid 0 for extra speed.

CPU:

Motherboard: DONT USE ASUS nFORCE4 BOARDS!!!

Honestly... ASUS is bad news this round.. ABIT or Gigabyte or I suppose MSI or EPOX... NO ASUS and NO FOXCONN.

Darkblade, Why don't you like asus or foxconn? In my experience they have both made good boards, and a foxconn nforce4 board I've used has been particularly feature rich for the money.

Because, my old ASUS A8N SLi Deluxe board ruined my first SLi system with dual 6800Ultras and 1GB of RAM. That was a lot of money when it first came out. The board was terrible unstable! FOXCONN, they are just not built with good quality in my honest opinion. ABIT currently is the leader in quality, hands down. I mean... well, I will show you what I mean when I get my system up and running. My FATALITY will put any board to shame.
