hi there look at that!

Heres my current PC

P4 1.8 Northwood
1 GB PC2100 RAM
MSI GeForce FX 5200 128 MB AGP (stupid stock dell mobo only supports 4x ) OC'ed to 279/472 .
40GB and 20GB HDD's
rest of the stuff is just whatever crap Dell stuck in it

Mainly used for web surfing/IM and Games of course (I don't really play/own any extremely demanding F.E.A.R or Doom 3 type games).
It's just getting a bit old, so I'm thinking about building a custom rig
.

Here's what I have so far, all from newegg/zipzoomfly
Patriot 1GB (2 x 512MB) PC3200 Dual Channel Kit - $99.99
Western Digital Caviar SE 80GB SATA 150 Hard Drive - $55.00
eVGA Geforce 6600GT 128MB PCI-E - $115.00
NEC DVD/CD combo thing (you know what I mean) - $39.99
Antec TRUEPOWERII 550W PSU - $89.99
ASUS A8N-SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - $122.00
RAIDMAX ATX-268WU Blue Computer Case With Side Panel Window - 30.50
AMD A64 3200+ s939 Venice Core - $160.00
Total comes to about $712

I'd like to possibly lower the price to the mid 600s possibly.
I was thinking about getting a cheaper PSU maybe? (need at least a 500W, because I'll probably buy another GFX card later for SLI, buy a new processor, and maybe do some overclocking )

Advice appreciated

If you are gonna buy a second video card later, I suggest you just buy a cheaper PSU now and upgrade it when you buy your second card.
I don't know about your card, but is it that good? It's one of the first SLI cards, maybe you need to look for something better, (if the price is OK with you)
