Default New build! going from a Pentium 2 450!

Hi all,

This is very true, i'm still running a pentium 2 450 with 256 Mb pc100!
So now i think this is time for a new build!

I must say i'm kind of outdated about new hardware but i read forum and try to find what's today best for the buck.
And unfortunatly i'm on budget! (i'm always on budget this is why i still have my Pentium2!!! )

So lets see, i'm trying to build something around 1000 - 1200$ including monitor, keyboard, mouse etc... (but no printer and speakers)

At the moment this is where i'm going to :

- Case : Antec Nine Hundred
- Processor : Intel Core 2 duo E8500
- Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P or Asus P5Q-E.
- PSU : Corsair 750TX (already bought, thanks for the deals section!)
- Memory: I would like 4 gig PC2-8500, maybe some G-Skill or Corsair XMS2 Dominator. But i haven't read a lot about memory yet.
- Hard drives : Maybe Samsung Spinpoint F1 or Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 (maybe 2 x 500gb)
- Video Card : Not set yet but i would like Nvidia, so i want at mimimum a 9800 GT or Better. (as for brand i like Evga)
- Monitor : i would like at least a 20" but i dont know which one to get.
- Optical Drive : No idea yet.

Also i will use my new build for games and for 3d Rendering and video editing.

Thanks for any suggestions!
