The GXS doesn't have an 8pin PCI-E dude

So you wouldn't be able to OC the card

Other than that it looks awesome.

Change the monitor to something better.. I have never even heard of that make, and for TV's and monitors no name brands are nearly always bad.

Change the Hard Drives too and get 3 250GB 7200.10 Perpendicular Recording Barracuda's. They are much faster and better hard drives.

I would also personally change the PSU to a 620WT Corsair although yours is probably good enough for that rig, but the 700WT version of that wouldn't be bad either!

Also I would change the mouse to a MX 518 Logitech mouse or a G5.

One more thing.. the Q6600 and 2900XT will go down in price over time, especially the Q6600 it's price will go down by about £20 or more within a month, its demand at the moment is huge.

Up to you really, I'd sell it personally and build a cheaper rig with the money if you want another rig.

But if you really don't need another rig just sell it and keep all the money!
