    I have decided its about time I got a new PC built. Previously I have bought my PC from a seller. However my PC usually ends up in bits anyway so I though its about the time I did the honarble thing and build my own PC.

    This is more a request for people to look over the spec and point out anywhere that I may of messed up.

    FSP Sparkle FX700-GLN Epsilon 700W ATX2.0 PSU (CA-001-SK)

    Thermaltake VB1000BNS Soprano SuperMidi Tower - Black (CA-017-TT)

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ (Socket 939) - Retail (ADA4800CDBOX)

    Sapphire PURE RD580 CrossFire Advantage (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard (PC-A9RD580Adv) (MB-004-SP)

    GX-059-PC PowerColor ATI Radeon X1900 XT-X 512MB GDDR3 AVIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-059-PC)

    GX-045-CO ATI Radeon X1900 ***Crossfire Edition*** 512MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-045-CO)

    Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x1GB) CAS2 (MY-079-CS)

    2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 250GB ST3250624AS SATA-II 16MB Cache - OEM (HD-058-SE)

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro CPU Cooler (Socket 754/939/940) (FG-000-AR)

    Samsung SH-D162 DVD-ROM (Black) - OEM (CD-002-SA)

    Asus DRW-1608P2 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter

    Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound (3.5g) (AC-000-AC)

    Now I not quite sure will I need to Buy cables or will those come with some of the components. Have I missed any thing that or is this spec ok?

    ehm soprano case? even tho I have this, if you spend all that money on a pc, I would recommend a different case, the case is cheap/plasticy to the touch, the airflows aint exactly the best, althought the case is fine for me

    Well What I was looking for on the case is good airflow so can someone suggest a case with good airflow that looks fairly good.
