looks pretty good, nothing I would really change. Get ready for possibly needing to lap your thermalright straight out of the box though-mine came machined not even close to flat.

thats a great system. i had the same thing in mind when i built mine..not to have to upgrade for a while!

but you MAY want to consider a 640mb gts for some of the bigger games in the near furture. the textures are getting pretty crazy!

Bloody great PC! Nigh on perfect choices

One thing to change though... don't get the X-fi ExtremeGamer.. The X-fi ExtremeMusic is so much better for everything basically, ironically for gaming as well.

Comparing stock tuniqs and the ultra-120Ex, the ultra-120 is still better, stick with thermalright, lapping isn't a must, but will help shave a few degrees.

Also, bump it up to a 640mb, you'll be glad you did, when these new dx10 games get rolling

Otherwise, looks good, what was your total? like $1300-$1500?
