    rig

    Retail processors come with a heatsink, so you don't need another unless you want to overclock or want it more quiet. Your board looks nice, you may want a gig of ram, but I know, ddr2 is expensive. What are you going to use this computer for, a media center, gaming rig, multimedia, dvd burning? The x600 isn't the best for gaming, still decent, but a x700 pro would be a lot better.

    Ok, good job, you seem like you know what you want and what will suit your needs and still stay in your price range. For what you are doing, that seems like a good overall choice.
