Need some advice on finishing build

Yeah, so I have got a few parts that I have already ordered and I am looking for a good motherboard, hard drive, case and optical drive to finish off this build.

Here's what I have so far

CPU- Intel E5200

GPU- XFX Geforce 9600 GSO, 768 mb

RAM- G. Skill 4 gb ddr2 800

PSU- Rosewill rp500-2

So I'm just looking for some feedback on what other parts would go good with this build. I am on a budget and dont want to spend more than a hundred bucks on the motherboard and around 50 for the case and harddrive.

  1. List of several p43/45 based mobo's. Get one that has the options that you want and the price you can afford.

    Rosewill isn't the most reliable, so I'll recommend a few that are:
    $71 - $20 MIR= $51 Plently for what you need.
    CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Power Supply - Retail
    $41 shipped! Plenty for what you need and still has good quality!
    SILVERSTONE ST400 400W ATX 12V 2.2 Power Supply - Retail
    $50 shipped! Also a good selection. >80% efficient too!
    Antec Neo Power 430 430W ATX12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Retail

    or get a case PSU combo:
    $91 shipped! Has Antec 380w PSU w/27A on the 12v rails and is >80% efficient too! I have this exact case/PSU combo and haven't had any issues and I have a more taxing setup than yours!!
    Antec Solution Series NSK4480B Chassis

    HD - $75 shipped! If you can afford it, this HD is fast and quite big for the price.
    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
  2. You interested in a XFX 680i lt SLI MB w/ 350G HD and case w/ 450w PSU? I just rebuilt and hate to see it collect dust. I was going to slowly build something out of it, but if you are interested let me know.
  3. ^lol would anyone be... no offence of course.

    IMO, great choice with the CPU, i recommend a good P45, a 9600GT instead of the GSO, or if you aren't looking to spend more, a 4670 depending on the price. 4670 was designed to compete with the 8800GS/9600GSO.

    +1 for a better PSU and hdd. but not really that system making-or-breaking.
  4. Another +1 for the PSU and HDD suggestion.

    Nice choice on the E5200.
