I really feel like Professional is a good idea because I don't plan to get Vista.
Other than that, does my system seem okay?

here's the difference between pro and home, personally i don't think you will notice any difference. (even the bootscrs are the same after sp2) Unless you are running a business pro is just not worth the extra$$.

http://www.winsupers...xp_home_pro.asp

I'd disagree on the negative comments no vista, i am now using beta 2 as my main operating system and it's great, as long as you have a decent proc and 2 gigs of ram it will run smoothly. Sure some incompatability issues remain but dual booting with XP is a solution. Vista is the future and you'd be suprised how much you will like it.

I owne a Sonata II and it's an amazing case, the smart power 2.0 450 can handle anything you throw at it, the led in front is very bright. Their customer support programer is top notch I got a response by email in 2 hrs, you are covered for 3 yrs on all parts. I would suggest that you purchase an extra 120mm fan for the case to cool down the HD. Just be aware that if you are planning to get some big CPU hsf (Like the Zalman 7700 or 9500,) it's gonna be a tight fit and installation will require the removal of the psu.

Okay, i'll get a CoolerMaster 120MM BLUE LED Fan 22dBA 1220RPM but im not sure it will be for HD. I still think i'll stick with Professional because i'm not getting Vista.

OTHER THAN THAT is everything okay?

yes cpu's always come with stock hsf, but stock means aluminum which means hot and noisy. The CNPS9500 is amazing, (got one in my Sonata II) ncix has it for a lot less, plus the price is already in cdn. Before you buy plz go check on the zalman website for compatibility with mobo.
nvm i did it for u and it doesn't say anything about your mobo, but judging from the K8N series your mobo should fit. If you don't mind the noise and don't plan to overclock the Stock heatsink and fan is more than enough. 60 dollars is a lot for a chunk of pretty copper.

My second fan in the case was supplied to me by antec, i called them up and said that i wanted a second fan, and they mailed one to me free of charge. It's the antec tricool 120 mm which has the speed controls on them and is very handy. the rubber screwes that comes with the fan gets rid of vibration and keep everything quiet. Make sure the dvd drive you buy is black... cause the casse is black. And becareful not to put any scratches onto the case, it has a beautiful piano black reflective finish.

Anyways good luck with your new build and don't forget a surge protector is a good investment to guard your newly built machine, get one at futureshop for around 20 dollars. Adios and happy computing.

Today, I placed my order for my new system. I should have it in 5-7 days. I have forgot the second fan for now but I will most likley get one very soon. I look forward to gaming with you guys. My current gaming names are ElementalDemon (Warcraft III FT), Zestron, PetervG, and I may think of another. At the store I had to pay a $120 discount! Wow! Oh well. As long as I get a working gaming rig before the summers over. I'll egt back to you once I get the system and try stuff out.

Peter out!
