Thanks again for your advice. 

I don't need a DVD burner because my laptop already has one, also i'm 
quite happy with my current case.

I've gone to newegg and picked a mobo that I felt would fit my needs now 
and in the future.   The mobo has 3 PCI slots but also has 2 additional 
PCI express 1x and 2 PCI express 16x slots which could be used for 
future expansion.  In addition it has 2 pata ports allowing me to use my 
3 hard drives and dvd drive.  I also considered this mobo  *ECS PF88

<http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813135202>* but it 
only had 1 PCI express 1x slot and was only $10 less after rebate.  Also 
i'm more comfortable buying from NVidia.  Can you see any problems with 
this hardware?  Also my power supply is a 450w Anantech, I think that 
should be enough power for this configuration.  What do you think? 

Once again, thanks a bunch for your advice.
