Im planning to build my first pc in the next few months and first of all I was wondering if anyone had any advice? Also, Id like feedback on my list. Assume anything not listed I already have something for it, such as monitor, speakers. The prices are from newegg. Thanks for your help.

A couple things...
It looks like you are a gamer, hence the $400+ card but are you going to be doing anything else with this?
Are you going to OC this? If so you might want a good heatsink for it.
Also last thing, and this is a small tiny tidbit, 120GB hard drive? you are spending 1800 on a computer and buying a 120GB? I think once you install some games, and if you have any 'purchased' MP3's, or some 'backup copies' of Movies you will notice 120GB soon be a tad small.
I just looked up on New Egg and they have a WD 200GB, IDE Ultra ATA100.....for 116.50. Its an OEM and has a 3yr Warranty. The one you have is Retail and 1yr Warranty. So far less money you can almost Double your size. I have found for WD, 200GB is the best GB/$ you can get.
