HI

I am building a new computer and i though u guys would give me some suggestions on these parts:

MOTHERBOARD
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
$207

VIDEO CARD
BFG 6600GT PCI-E
$227

PROCESSOR
AMD Athlon 64 3000BP 939 Pin
$184

RAM
Corsair 1024MB PC-3200PRO TWINX-Dual Channel DDR - TWINX1024-3200C2PRO
$184

HARD DRIVE
Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 160GB 7200rpm 8MB buffer
$89

OR

Maxtor DiamondMax 10 - 250GB 7200rpm 16MB buffer
$123

OPTICAL DRIVE
LG 52X CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo
$42

Case
Aspire X-Dreamer Case (Beige) - CC-ASP-XDR-420BE
$80

POWER SUPPLY
Aspire 500W See-Through Pwr Supply - Silver - PS-ASP-AS500W-SL
$88

The case comes with a 350W power supply but i don't think thats enought for the hardware and future upgrades. I am also looking forward to putting another identical video card (SLI) in the future.

*The prices are all in Canadian dollars. I am getting them from this store www.pccyber.com so you can go there if there are any better products let me know.

The ram seems pricey, dont get the pro its identical to the other stuff you just pay almost a 100 quid for a black heatsink that arguably isnt needed at all for ram. Make sure the cpu is venice or san deigi core.
