Sounds good. Be aware that by having a 64 bit OS, any devices you own that aren't made by major brands or are old may not have drivers that work with 64 bit.

Please also bare in mind that you cannot run any old 16 bit games on a 64 bit OS.

Other than that you should be good to go more or less.

Thanks for the notice, I think this will only be playing games like AOE, WoW and some odd other ones i find, despise that i think the OS i found is 32/64 bit it costs more because i noticed that the normal H/p 32/64 separate cost like 84.00

Whatever floats your boat, all the games above mentioned will run fine on 64bit.

Removing that Expensive GB ram, (3x1GB) the price has gone down considerably, currently 449.14, without OS, but that will just go to 520.00 ish, i'll check this through With my Techie-friend (trust me, he knows like everything XD) see what he says. Thanks!

No power supply in that list, unless you already have one. If not read this,

Power Supply Information and Selection - Tech Support Forum

first on what to look for. Then read this one,

The Bargain Basement Power Supply Roundup Review

on why to avoid cheapo no-name power supplies.

For the ram, unless you are looking at getting an i7 forget the triple channel kits as the i7 is the only one that supports it.

What games are you looking at playing? The GT 220 is not really much of a gaming card and with the exception of the G210 (now this is a bad card), is about the lowest performing current Nvidia card.

World Of Warcraft (its what my PC build is based around), i'm not sure if the Case comes with a PSU, but if it doesn't my friend will find one, i'll send him on a mini mission.
