    Ok those parts sound good except the motherboard go with somthing other than soltek. My friend has soltek and its really unrealiable and his computer is the same as mine but different motherboards and mine works perfect. Also dont go with the i865PE Chipset or VIA chipsets. Go with Nforce Chipsets. And try to choose a motherboard that is a good brand like Asus, Abit, Gigabyte, MSI... Hope that helps and nice viedo card (ATI Rules)


    Also 450 400 maybe 350 would do fine in your computer
