More about first build advise
  1. what are you looking to do with the computer? And what is your budget?
  2. Play Battlefield 2 and Internet mostly. 500 Min for rest of the stuff
  3. THG has a regular series of "System Builder Marathon" articles at various price points. The site also runs regular articles about "Best Video Cards at different price points. Look at those.

    My general recommendations:

    Video card - ATI 4850
    HD - 640 GB Western Digital
    DVD burner - Samsung S-203 or whatever "S" model they are selling now.
    CPU fan
    No OC - stock HSF is OK
    Moderate OC - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
    Full OC - Xigmatek HDT S-1283. If you get one of these, get the mounting plate.

    Case? Very much an individual decision.

    I didn't specify brand of video card. Sales, specials, and rebates may affect your decision.
