1) I'm okay with the X3 440.

2) Motherboard is a DDR2 motherboard, so you'll need DDR2 RAM or make the switch to a DDR3 supported motherboard.

3) I would only drop down to the ATI 5770 or ATI 4850 for gaming. The ATI 5750 isn't really worth it... IMO

4) See # 2 to address RAM

5) I would much rather you spend a little extra and get the Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB drive or Seagate 7200.12 500GB drive, if available

6) When you say inferior brand... do you mean like XION or HEC?? I wouldn't consider Cooler Master to be a top notch, either. I would try to stick with Corsair, SeaSonic, Antec or OCZ... IMO

Can you post a link to the retail store so we can review and give you options??

is seagate is better than western digital?

Which gpu will be better 1gb or 512 for my monitor resolution?
Is there any disadvantage if i use any ordinary psu {i am not looking for oc}?
