Ok guys, I've decided to build a computer with the money I'm receiving for my birthday. (Even though I've got a big ol' cast, my friend Sterling14 is going to help me actually put it together.) Anyway, here are the parts I'm looking at:

Motherboard: MSI 945P Neo3-F LGA 775 Intel 945P ATX Intel Motherboard

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale 1.8GHz 2M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor

Graphics Card: XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

RAM: SUPER TALENT 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

HDD: Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

Disc Drive: LITE-ON Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache E-IDE/ATAPI DVD Burner with LightScribe Technology

Case: RAIDMAX Sagitta ATX-921WBP Black/Silver SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 450watt PRESCOTT/ SATA Ready Power Supply

Monitor: Hanns·G HW-173DBB Black 17" 8ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 500:1

OS: Microsoft Windows Vista 32-Bit Home Premium for System Builders Single Pack DVD

I realize that a few of the parts are "budgety," but, being just a kid and not having a job, I'm on a budget and really cant afford anything more than that. Also, before you guys yell at me for using a bottom-of-the-line PSU that's bundled with the case, I have an extra one laying around my house that works. :thumbsup: So, any suggestions on how to save a few dollars here and there or how to make it a better build? Any help would be appreciated.

Lol, I'm not getting that much from my birthday, I already had quite a bit saved up :thumbsup:

Anyway, if someone would check over this and put in some insight, i'd appreciate it.
