Flunk is on a distinguished road
Default

Motherboards:

ASUS or Abit

CPU:

Athlon 64 is a better deal for the money than the P4

Cooling:

If you're not overclocking watercooling is pointless. Rounded cables look nice if you're interested in that. Otherwise decent case fans at lower rpms are easier on the ears.

Video:

6800 Ultra is a great choice

Audio:

Despite what others may say the Audigy 2 is a great card (though tempermental) and a really imporant addition if you either play a lot of games or have a better set of speakers.

Case:

I love my Lian-Li PC60 but the quality comes at a premium price.

Power Supply:

I would go with a no lower than 480watt brand-name PSU to be safe. Thermaltake, Antec and Enermax are all good brands I've used before.
