Well, I have been doing some research and as far as I can tell, the components I have selected should be compatible. If you see a glaring oversight on my part please let me know. I would hate to order all of this only to be met with a bunch of stuff that doesn't work together. That being said, feel free to post on opinion or suggestion - just keep in mind my budget is 1800:

Lian-Li PC-75
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Mobo
XFX 7800 GTX (OCed to 490 and 1300)
Silverstone SST-ST60F 600W power supply
Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego
2GB Corsair valueselect DDR 400
Seagate 250GB SATA 150
Lite-On SOHW-1693S DVD burner

looks good, but you could get a cheaper case and psu and get better memory or something else like that.

a psu that just about everybody would recommend would be the tagan-480-u22. then you could get better memory, or possibly a better processor (maybe an X2).

Get the ePower PUMA II if you are gonna switch your PSU

Also, good choice on the Lian Case, i wish i could get one of those
I would change the type of RAM you are getting, go with something like PATRIOT Extreme, Corsair XMS, Kingston HyperX, You are running a fast system, why buy value ram?

Just my .02

NO PC As Of NOW!

I'll still be on here once in a while.

Don't get the AMD Athlon 64 4000+. Pickup the Athlon 64 X2 3800+. It will last you longer and will give better performance overall.

Amen to what megadeth said. Also, how is that $1800 bucks? Is that price from Newegg?
