Nice. You're going for almost the same stuff that I am, aside from the mem (I'm getting their PC3200, 1GB of the stuff) Vantec Aeroflow, and Chieftec case with 450psu + 3 casefans.

Enjoy! I know I will. :D

I don't think I need 1GB of memory at the moment. Nothing I do that I can think of would take up so much mem. That and there's a pretty big price difference :p
After buying all this hardware, I don't think I'll have much money left. :)

Well, I am getting all that, I just put in all the parts that have to do with performance. I have not yet decided 100% on a new monitor.
Here is some additional stuff:

Lite On 52x32x52x Black Color
Pioneer 16X DVD-ROM (Slot Load Drive)
Mitsumi Floppy Drive (Black)
