First of all you always want to have a very good power supply. That one looks alright but im not sure that i would trust a $25 power supply but its up to you. Here is a great power suplly that is a good deal after the rebate. I got the same one except its the 650 pro and i got it for the same price with rebate so this would be an even better deal.

Cooler Master 750 Pro

Everything else looks good. I actually just bought the same motherboard, same case, same ram(except 2X1GB), and will also be running windows XP.

You will need a Graphics card and depending on what you want to spend i can help recomend one. Most people will say though if your a gammer then you want to spend a minimum of $100 on one

I just bought the EVGA 8800GS which is a good deal after rebate.
8800GS

If you want to spend more than this and want a higher end card then for Nvidia youll want to look at the 9600GT or the 8800GT, If you like ATI then you will want to look at the 3850 or the 3870.

The link for the DVD burner isnt working

I am wondering why you are spending the moneyfor a good processor but only a marginally good board with only one pci x16 slot and limited overclocking support for your processor.I would use a board that supports ddr3 ram, especially if you plan to overclock.

It looks like everything will work but that is one VERY spendy processor. I'd rethink that part and go with something that can be OC'd a little more and spend maybe 50 or 75% less. Maybe I'm just jealous that you can afford a $1K+ processor and I can.

Good luck and let us know how it all comes out.
