try this site, www.eclipsecomputers.com very good all round site slightly slower then others but parts are cheap and are of good quality...been buying from them for 2 years now with no issues...
as regards what to buy,make sure you get ddr2 and not normal ddr for this board.also a pci ecxpress graphics card not agp.
you will not need a sound card this motherboard has 7.1 realtek hd audio built in.
and i would get a sata hard drive,they are no more expensive then id drives now.
if i can be of anymore help please post back
regards
danzil
