Very nice, can see nothing wrong with that :)

Thanks Jamie!

The only thing I was a little unsure of was the video card...the manufacturer in particular.

Also, will this system be OK for a possible future upgrade to a 8800GTS?

Your motherboard will definitely support a 8800GTS, but your chosen card is still very good.

Yeah that motherboard is great, it will support any PCIX16 cards present and future, or two :D

The 7900GS will give you a great cheaper option for games, it will currently play anything out now on high settings.

Thanks guys. I was completely overwhelmed with all the possibilities before I found this site....and in particular your advice.

That's a terrific build. I have no exposure to Rosewill power supplies, but have read other poeple with some problems and customer service complaints. I would suggest some research on PSU reviews. Just a thought.

He chose a Rosewill case, not a PSU :rolleyes: :D
