Hey guys I will upgrade my system next week. I'm keeping the following components: SB Live 5.1, Maxtor 40gb HD 7200 rpm ATA 100, Generic 300 watt PS, Sony DVD, HP 8x4x32 burner and my Geforce 3 TI 200 Vid card(Visiontek).

I'm thinking of buying the following components: Mobo Gigabyte 7VRXP, 1800XP chip, 512mb PC 2700.

What do you think, wise choices or not?

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

The Gigabyte Ga-7VRXP has been known to have many instability issues and problems, i'd avoid it, there are better choices out there. The 1800+ isn't bad, but for like another $10 or $20 you could probably get a 2000+, nice boost. Everything else is fine. Make sure your power supply will handle the new parts, 300 watts sometimes has a trouble handling AXPs if it's a lower end generic brand.

aha!! it has some kind of cuts, hehehe"

Suggest you using EPoX EP-8K5A2+.
It use vt8235 and support USB2.0.
