    on something.
    Graphics, sound and Lan are intregrated on this model of mobo I think, Modem I don't know about, but if yer on cable I'm not sure it's needed.

    Graphics and sound could be better but the nice thing about this setup is that you can always upgrade later and the integrated stuff isn't too shabby for a start.

    I like the MOBo, I'd probably get some more stuff, and a mouse and keybord that weren't wireless (hate it when the batteries go out), but that's just me.

    It looks like you've got it mostly covered, you might need some extra screws and a tube of arctic silver when you put it together, but you'll have to wait and see if any extra stuff is needed to put things together when you have it all.

    Cpu cooler if it's not the retail cpu.

    And if you are thinking of overclocking, I'd go for DDR333 (PC2700) memory. In fact I'd probably go for that anyway, considering the marginal price difference, you can still run it as if it is DDR266.

    And go for a lower speed 80mm case fan - same price and performance, less noise, always assuming that case will take an 80mm fan. If not, change the case.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
