well .. im only 16 and i just got started into this whole puting stuff together thing .. this is what im gonna get and i need to know if they will work together and a good case to go with them all

intel D865 PERL motherboard - socket 478 - $70
Pentuim 4 Northwood 3.0HT - socket 478 - $270
ATI Radeon 9700 - AGP x8 - 128MB - $270
Maxtor DiamondPlus9 - ATA - 160GB - $130
CORSIAR pc400 - ddr-SDRAM - 1024MB - $230 (x4 maybe)

This is the best stuff i could find on the market .. if you know of a better product (resonably priced - no $9999 stuff) than please tell me. Also .. the Intel motherboard says it supports 4GB of ram .. since the ram there is 1024MB .. will it couse a problem to put 4 of them in.

Do you plan on OCing your Cpu? IF you are you need to change your Mobo.

First of all do you really need that much?
1 GB should do you fine.
If I were you I'd wait for a year or more, then add more in. It'll save you a lot of money. Money to spend on other things like the ati 9800pro...
And check that the HD is a fast one no good letting that slow you down.
As for the rest I can't help you from the top of my head but I'm sure some of the others have some idea's.

Life's a joke and so am I
