Hello, I am a longtime Mac User that has decided to go PC. I have looked at the parts I would like and I only have questions on compatability and the quality of the parts. I would appreciate any advice on my choices, especially if they are not compatable or if I am missing something. One good turn deserves another

Very nice choices!
Just a question about the RAM. Is it actually Asus RAM, because I didn't know they put out memory. Kingston, Corsair, Crucial, Geil, and Mushkin are all great brands for memory.
Also, where are you planning on buying these parts? Newegg is probably the best online store.

Wow, someone changing mac to pc? Unheard of .
But, yeah, that looks pretty good except for a few things - i'm not sure how Asus memory is, so you might want to check out some other brands (Crucial, Mushkin, Geil, Kingston, etc.), also, how many watts is the power supply? And lastly, unless you're intending to do overclocking, you can just stick to the heatsink that comes in the retail Athlon packaging.
