New config:

Wow, thanks for the feedback, guys. Here's what I've come up with:

MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale 1.8GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E4300 - Retail

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) DualChannel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ - Retail

EVGA 256-P2-N624-AR GeForce 7900GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 KO Video Card - Retail

Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - OEM

Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2B 1 Pack - OEM
Haha, I'm finally moving to XP! :P

I really really want one of these:
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
Or maybe one of these:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
But I'm having trouble justifying the extra $$ atm when I have several perfectly good ATA Barracudas. Still, $70 or $80 to move my OS and proggies to a fat SATA disk right off the bat is very tempting.

I still plan on reusing the stuff I listed here.


Does this config look better than the last one?

Anything I could do better, for the price?

I've heard the Allendale 775 has a crappy heatsink; think I should get this Zalman right off the bat?
ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan with Heatsink - Retail

Will you buy me a pony? I shall need to sell it or win races with it in order to afford this.
