Altogether it comes out to about $325.
Do you think it's worth the price and stuff?
I'll probably be using it just to play Starcraft 2, and school work.
I already have Speakers, Keyboard, Mouse, Windows 7 Disk and Key.

I think that you can get a slightly better video card for similar money–maybe DDR3, etc.
With the barebones kit, is that an Ultra power supply, and what are the specs on it ?

Why do you need a CPU cooling fan? There's one included with the CPU. Take that $15 & use it to buy a better video card...the 9500GT isn't very good, especially if you want to be able to play games. A decent entry level gaming card is the GT 240 with GDDR5 memory. I didn't check TigerD but Newegg has a Gigabyte card on sale for $40 after rebate w/free shipping. It will blow the 9500GT right out of the water!
