New Computer

Hey, I am thinking of getting a new computer... and wouldnt mind some input on the hardware I am choosing.
  • Asus P4C800 Deluxe
  • Antec TruePower 550w P/S
  • Antec PLUS1080AMG case
  • Corsair TWINX1024-4400

I havent decided on the video card, chip, and other stuff yet.... though the video card will be ati, cpu intel, and seagate HD's.... also I am going to use the SP-94 as a heatsink and the NB-1 as the chipset HSF but I cant figure out which is the best fan to go with (case/heatsink's noise is not a problem)

Thermaltake Smart Fan II is my favorite. While it is only 8cm, it has good control from 2000 to 5500 rpm, giving up to 75cfm. Even at the higher settings 4000rpm+, the noise is still tolerable. I like them so much I've got 4 in various thermalright heat sinks.

Can't give you too much advice on your other stuff tho, I'm a relative newbie with P4 systems, but the components sound good to me.

I have the Asus P4C800-E Deluxe and it is a good mobo. (i don't know the difrences.) I have a seagate baracuda 120 Gb with the Sati interface and it works fine. Sati looks great but has a tendancy of being knockd off the mobo. So u have to be carfull. If u havent see the cables they are flat bout 1/4 in wide and the ones that cme with my mobo are red.

ooh yea and i havent seen the powersuply but it osunds nice. 550 whats - cool.
