Sounds pretty good. If you plan on doing some gaming with it, I personaly dont recommend useing a wireless mouse. The one i was using had a bit of a lag when I moved it fast.

Good choice on getting the 2gb of memory and the large hard drive.

and the wireless Keyboards are a good choice

What are the specs on that video card? I googled it and got nothing back that made sense to me.

Looks good to me, but from the newegg pictures, it looks like it as an Analog input and an DV input, yet the specs say it has two DV inputs. Well technically they are outputs, but you know what I mean.

Also, maybe check into the deluxe version of that motherboard. Better ratings on Newegg.

One more thing, I'm looking at that same PSU, have you heard anything about it?

I wish I could find out more about it as well. I have several posts on it in other forums but no real answers as of yet. The PSU I'm using now in the 520W Vantc Stealth and many have said that I would have been in good shape with a 480W PSU. I do like it but it's not real quiet at times and I did notice a slight upward trend in power usage at home and it's the only thing relativly new that I've been using for several months now.

I am in the same shape as you. I haven't heard anything about it. It's looking like I will be going with this Sparkle PSU for my new rig. It was recommended too me and the reviews on it from Newegg don't look too shabby.
