Idk about the mobo you choose, I heard a p35 one is pretty good, idk much about x38.

On your graphics card any special reason why 7900gs?


good luck, I don't like that case.

The components you chose are excellent apart from one......

The 7900GS, will not play many new games.

Go for an 8800GT if you can afford it, if you can't, change the motherboard to one with a P35 chipset.

I could not find a 8800GT anywhere, so I picked this one. I'm not a big gamer.
I mostly play EQ2. When they become more avalible and the price comes down i'll most likely upgrade then. Thanks for the input. btw this site is great.:)
