    I would go with a Asus motherboard avoid Abit like the plague make sure you have Sata

    Get a power supply not one that comes with the case

    A good power supply is one of the most things overlooked on a computer

    Hard Drive I go with the Maxtor Dimond max 10 sata it the top one in the 7200 rpm range

    Yea go with a asus. BUt no matter the brand just make sure it has all of the faetures you want (like sata). The HD you got there is a pretty good deal, so i would stick with it but for expansion reasons getting sata on your board wouldnt be a bad idea!

    Yeah, get 3200 memory here's a good deal.
    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=20-144-309&depa=1

    Also get a 6600 standard rather than an x600. They're the same price, and the 6600 does better and has newer features.
    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=14-125-158&depa=1

    For a cheap mobo, this is good.

    For a better one here.
    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=13-127-182&depa=0
    Edit: Both of the above mobos only have 1 ide port, so if your using ide hard drives and cd/dvd drives, you would need 2 ports. You could get a sata hd.
    Or get a board like this. It has 3 ide ports.
