    Thacker,

    the only recommendation i would make would be be buy better DDR. house brands have a bad habit of going bad or you risk getting a bad stick on delivery. i know that it'll cost you more, but IMO it would be worth it. I like samsung myself.

    just my two cents! :)

    I have almost the same board sitting at home waiting for time for me to swap it with my old MB. I have the KT3-Ultra2R. Been doing reasearch the last few days getting drivers, BIOS upgrades, and checking ram prices..


    Some comments for your list...
    Try shopping at www.Newegg.com or www.Pricewatch.com

    Motherboard: Get the KT3-Ultra2R version instead. RAID onboard. Save the $20 on the seperate card.

    Memory: Get Kingmax(SEC) PC2700 512mb DDR. It's the only PC2700 512mb memory on MSI's compatibility list. $112 at newegg

    CPU: An Athlon 2100 XP can be had for under $100. Will you really notice a difference in everyday use? Save the extra $200 for a Radeon 9700 Pro or a really good Heatsink and fan combo. Swiftec copper?

    Video: See CPu above. :)

    Harddrives: Get 7200rpm drives. ATA100 is fine. There isn't much of a performance difference from ATA100 to ATA133.

    CDRW: Get a Lite On drive
    CDROM: Get a DVD drive instead

    Monitor: no comment here... I have an old fashioned 19" CRT at home. :) good for watching dvd's.
