Nice build have you looked into other RAM that could be cheaper? I wouldn't change anything that Centurion is a great buy and nice PSU.

You can replace that RAM with this set and save some money plus get some performance increases: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231114

That 8600GT could be replaced with a 7 series card, the 7900GS is more powerful than the 8600GT. The 8600GT has directx10 capatibility, but not a whole heck of a lot of power. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814186013

Or spend a little more and get the 7950GT, that is a very powerful card and would serve you well.

Do you plan on overclocking? If so you might want a good air cooler.

That Special Ops RAM will end up costing 30$ less than that with MIR you know So it's really 78$ and not 108$.

If Infonec.ca screws up by any chance, they have a real nice and efficient customer service anyways

Here if you want to swap to a E4300and save a few bucks, they overclock pretty easily so...

While I'm buying my comp, I'm not taking into account the rebates as half of them end up giving excuses to not give you the money.

I was looking at some 8600GT benchmarks and it looks very nice for the price.
