Couple comments...

1) The chaintek mobo is a great price and is a good deal....Their customer service sucks though.....Id go with the Epox EP-9NPA+ or the DFI lnfinity or Lanparty....Wont cost you much more

2) Power supply looks good....for the price though id go with this one instead
3) Id go with the 3700+ san diego....not much of a price diff

4) Instead of the value ram go with the G.Skill...It offers cas 2 at value ram prices and is good stuff

5)You going with a SATA2 hdd? You prob could get a 200 or 250 gig for not much more....unless you just found a great deal for the 160[/url]

I would be using the computer for games (black and white 2, far cry, doom 3, half life 2, fear) and using the internet and downloading/playing music. The total amount of money of all the parts i listed is amount the limits of my budgets, i cant go up much more.

A stick of GSkill 512MB PC3200 with TCCD/5 will go way over his budget not to mention he needs two.

PDC1G3200+XBLK would suit more of his budget while still getting the same stuff as GSkills with TCCDs.

not the tccd5 chip G.Skill....just the regular cas 2 one....and its only 100 bucks for 2 sticks
unless you are wanting to overclock which he doesnt sound like he does these will work fine and still provide the cas 2 timings which almost no value ram offers

might wanna go with alittle more memory then just 512 if you wanna play games and stuff, i think these days, 1GB is kinda the norm.
