what do you think of this what do yoiu think would make it better for not a lot more money this is not built yet so i'm still planning it out
What are your uses? I'd watch the wireless stuff if you are heavily into gaming where time is critical.
The retail fan will run a little warm for my taste, but as long as you are not planning to oc it will be fine.
The 300Wpsu is around the minimum for your config. Any expansion of HDDs or other drves etc. amy see you drawing the limit out of it, especially if it is not brand. I'm currently a big fan of the enermax 451 supplies - not too costly and loads of juice. A PSU that is not fully loaded will give more stable voltages generally.

well i plann on getting the soi .13 micron chip if it will work on my board when it comes out
so that will free up some power
if worst come to worst i will just by another psu becuase i don't plane i loading that hardrive up for a while
the 7dxr has an agp pro slot, i currently have a hercules prophet 4500 on the board and it works great. i also have 512 megs of ddr ram and my system is extremely quick, check crucial for that however.
life is what happens while you are making other plans
so in other words yes an agp board will fit in an agp pro slot

Don't spend the extra $$ for the 3Com NIC. A friend who makes a living installing networks told me he personally uses NetGear NICs. He also showed me a box of dead 3com's
Said nowadays all the NICs have the same processor overhead.
Also-maybe a better soundcard? (unless music or 3D sound don't matter)
