DON'T get the Intel board, go with a board using the same chipset from either Abit or Asus. Also, better, faster memory would be beneficial, especially if ur gonna O/C it. Also, look for a HDD with 8MB cache. Other than that, very nice!

edit: one more thing, PLEASE get XP Pro, not Home, please! please!

A branded psu will go a long way trust me the unbranded psus use crap parts go for antec or enermax cheap psus are known for frying ur system did it with my previous one. as for ur memory if u intend to overclock, corsair, OCZ, kingston all make good ones. OCZ little high priced i think. Geil memory is also known to perform well on p4 systems. Intel board stay away it won't let u overclock, performance isn't up to the likes of the Asus 875P mobo.

Aspire is not a name brand. They specialize in making cases, not PSU's. I wouldn't trust one of their power supplies in my system.

Acutally i'm pretty damn good with my PSU, it's running great, I already got 4 fans in there, 2 for the side, 1 AGP fan in PCI slot, and an exaust fan on top. I'f you wanna look at my case look at the contest forum, It's the dragon one.

Don't get an Intel Board, there not made for gaming. For ram, i recommend Corsair XMS gaming ram.
