Well. I'm on kind of a budget. But not too short in cash [$850] and I just wanted to get some reviews on the PC I'm thinking of building.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 [Looking to overclock just a little]

JetWay 775GT1-LOGE ATX Motherboard

eVGA GeForce 7900GT GFX Card

Corsair XMS 1GB DDR2 675 RAM

Seagate Barracuda 160GB 8MB 7200RPM

Lite-On Black DVD-/+RW Drive

Apevia Chameleon 500W PSU [For effect in my case. =D]

Sunbeam Transformer ATX Computer Case with side panel view


Most of the things mentioned here I'm fine with but what I'm concerned about is: JetWay 775GT1-LOGE Motherboard... Doesn't look bad. But only 2 reviews but both with 5/5 ratings.
If a new motherboard is recommended then it has to be full ATX, LGA775 Socket with full C2D support, DDR2 667 or above RAM, SLI ready, under $120 bucks. With a link. Preferrably newegg.com.

=D.

Thanks in advanced.

Woot, except for the PSU.
Check out this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

Now even though the rating is 4 eggs, it has 405 ratings, conmpared to the other one.

Well. Ever so recently the SmartPower series has been getting bad reviews like if you read all the reviews and choose the last 2 weeks tab there are more 2 and 1 egg reviews. Oh no?
What about this.

Enermax 485W PSU-$80
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

It has 22A on the 12V rails.
