So I am going to buy an entirely new rig, atm I have the PSU (CoolerMaster Silent Pro 600 Watt), GPU ( XFX 4870). What I need is CPU, MOBO, RAM. CD/DVD Drive, Hard drive, Operating System, and a case, I already made a wishlist on newegg I chose the following:

It all looks good to me, but you might be better off in the New Build section.

If you've got a BestBuy local to you, the price is the same for the Antec 300, save a few bucks on shipping and put it towards a DVD burner.

If you have any old windows xp software to use, get the windows 7 pro version oem for it's xp virtualization support. For ram, get some ddr3 even if it costs $10 more. For the motherboard, checkout the msi nf750-G55 for $108 shipped at newegg. For ram, get the kingston 2x1 gb of ddr3 1333 for $56.99 shipped. I've had good luck with msi boards. And the antec 300 is only $49.99 with free shipping at frys.com.
