yah, I already posted. Got it all taken care of....YAY!
NOW THAT is a REALLY cool thing. LED ram..YAH! Would be great with the clear plastic case w/ the leds. lol Here's the case I might get. It comes w/ a 550W PSU. I need to check the reviews though. Seems kinda cheap priced to come with a 550w PSU on top of it.

Says it fits mAtx as well as regular Atx boards.

You are correct... that PSU included is less powerful than the least expensive Corsair PSU: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139008
I suggest you get the Corsair PSU.

This is a good case: http://www.newegg.co.....0apollo black
You could also buy this one and not use the included PSU: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811148030

If you like the case you chose, I suggest you also buy a Corsair PSU and use it.

Kinda funny..that last one you gave me... http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811148030 is actually the one I originally wanted. The PSU isn't any good?

The included PSU might work fine for your setup (you probably don't need that much power), but I suggest a Corsair unit b/c they are much more reliable and powerful... they are going to keep your system more stable. In the end, it's up to you.

This is the PSU in the Logisys case: http://www.geeks.com...S480E12&cat=PWR
It has a much lower +12V amperage than the Corsair 400W.

I was thinking about getting a TV tuner. Do you know much about them? Are they worth getting? Would it work ok with my setup? The only reason why I was thinking about getting one is because the computer is in the bedroom and when the kids are going to bed I stay in there usually and they are usually watching something on tv. I want to be able to watch CBS while they are watching their shows. Would I be able to?

I don't know much about TV Tuners...
To use them, I would suggest Myth TV: http://www.mythtv.org/
Or Mediaportal: http://www.team-mediaportal.com/

Here are some cards: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16815293003
http://www.newegg.co...archResult=True

All you need is a cable to connect the card to.
Also, your mobo/cpu combo is not active anymore... going to have to buy them separately.

It might be a while before I can buy the mobo/cpu anyway. They always have some kind of combo deal going on. I was looking at the 2.8 ghz intel cpu for like an extra 30 bucks. I dunno. We'll figure it out when we get the extra cash i guess. lol Thanks for all your help. You gave me a nice refresher course and taught me a few new things. I appreciate all your help.

You are welcome. :)

When you get your components, I hope your build goes well! If you want to ask anything, feel free to do so.
