think of this. I am going to TRY and build my own PCfor uni. As an IT student it can't be rubbish but again as a student it can't be expensive.
I will be using the PC mainly for the internet and maybe some multimedia software and every so often a game of Flight Sim.
I have thanks to a friend come up with the below for the build.

Sorry for the delay in replying...

The link for the mobo doesn't work, however it all looks good. The only thing I would say is that I would go for the 64 bit version of Vista over the 32 bit one. It has been proven to be quicker, and will give you the ability to run 64 bit apps as well as 32 bit apps.
