Plus I already picked up an Antex Sonata case, another 120mm quiet case fan (case doesn't look well ventilated, so I opted for the second optional fan) The case has a 380 Watt power supply.
Also, I am getting a BFG 6800GT OC video card.. $399 (TOO EXPENSIVE, but hey, what can you do...)
Any suggestions / comments would be appreciated, this is my first system build since my OLD Athlon 700... I am going for a quieter system this time.
That case cools very well even without the extra fan. The 120mm fan is quiet and basically moves the same air as 2 - 80mm fans. The extra fan will help of course, but add noise and dust filter buildup.
I'd give that PS a go, as it is Antecs "True" series 380watt. It should be fine unless you max out the drives also.

Thanks for the input everyone. I think I am changing a few things to get a couple of the components better. I am gonna get some better ram and a different MoBo as well I think, I may go with an ASUS board... Also looking to learn the difference between the 939 90nm 3500+ and the 939 90nm 3200+ Also was curious about the difference between these and the Opterons...
I just bought a similar system (first *I* had built in a long time). I am not able to run Dual Channel memory on this m/b, as long as run in Single Channel it's rock solid. Don't know yet if it's a faulty m/b or a BIOS problem.

this case is a silent wind tunnel. I removed one of the floppy bay covers to allow more air to go thru, you can feel it sucking your hand in if you hold it in front. its heavy and dampens vibrations , uber case
