Hobo needs computer advice

Even though he is a Hobo, he's building a home computer.  Building his own customized Desktop with no desk to put it on.  He needs advice before he makes his big purchase.

Below is the description of the parts Hobo has selected for his new computer.  He asked me to post this so he could get some feedback.  He is also going to buy a monitor for around $100.  Do you have an suggestions, comments, input, ideas, etc????  If  so, post them in the comments.

    Ok, here’s something I always do when I buy a PC…rather than being tied to a certain motherboard or something, I think of specs I want and just look for deals that meet it. For example, the above MB has an AM3 CPU socket, a 2600MHx FSB, 4 RAM slots, and a certain number of I/O ports. I like http://www.pricewatch.com and take a look…http://www.pricewatch.com/gallery/motherboard_combos/1100t_combo

    That being said…I think the MB/CPU you chose are fine, I don’t think you’re gonna notice big performance differences between that and anything more expensive that will be worth the difference for long enough. The video card looks solid (even though I like ATI better than NVidia). 2 things though…cases and dvd/cd drives are almost interchangeable…same with power supplies for the most part, you may just wanna look on your local craigslist for what’s hanging out and save a few bucks. You may be able to buy a used PC from a year ago for $50 and just use the case, drives, and power supply, you know?

    Next thing to keep a look out for? 2TB hard drives for $60 :D I have 8TB in my server, it’s so cheap now :D
