I am finally building my own computer. Here's from newegg

Cost: $422.99+tax & shipping
Windows XP Home Edition OEM ($105) & Allied 400W PSU ($55) from local store that i have $115 credit at (unless i find different hardware there that qualifies to get me XP Home OEM)
$45+tax total cost there
+7.5% Sales Tax ($35.10!!)
$503.09 total cost.
I am using my current case, 52x32x52x LiteOn burner, 12x Aopen DVD rom, 2 120GB 8mb cache hard drives, 64MB Asus Ti4200
Then this machine will have left in it: an 8x yamaha burner, a 20 gig 7200 RPM hard drive, an ATI Rage 128 16 mb PCI card, 512 SDRAM.
Don't worry, I will get another video card soon.
Before I purchase, what does everyone think?
EDIT: The Motherboard is not for sure. I might get Abit, Epox, Aopen or Asus.
EDIT AGAIN: what about: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDe ... WSE&depa=0
