An 80gb HDD seems kinda small to me in this day and time but I guess it depends on what you'll be doing with the machine, personally I'd go for at least a 120gb.

Since you're a first time builder check out my sig, you'll find a lot of help there.

I hope you arent planning on OCing that CPU much cos that mobo wont let you...

Thanks for the responses. 80g is plenty big for me. I have no plans to OC I just was looking for a stable board that was easy to get up and running. I thought about the asus board but I dont have a clue why it would come with a remote control lol. thanks

That P5W DH does come with anything you could think about... lol
If you arent going to OC the 533 would do just fine. You dont have to pay the premiun/injustified price for that Intel board either.
