i can provide you full evidence that it can handle crysis all high dx9 with a 5400+ crappy amd processor getting over 30 frames.

why not add 6$ more for 2 more gb of ram?. i dont know where else would you find a 2x2 kit for 24$. seriously? 24$ for a 2x2 kit? where the hell do you shop?

otherwise; i do agree with you on the hard drive.

theres proof right there.
Thats a good score in FPS but they're running 1440x900 res and score around 11000 in 3dmark06.
Thats quite mediocre in my book. Sure you get high FPS but no candy or higher res.

thats a really nice build. i wouldnt change anything if you plan on gaming under 1440 x 900. even if ur just playing wow, it'll max out 1900x1200.

either pick will serve you well.

just choose what will save you on money

Go for the G.Skill RAM. The XMS2's will not OC very well. I had those myself and i wasnt able to squeeze more than 850mHz out of them.

Mobo: P5Q-pro. Its a P45. Speaks for itself.

The rest looks good. Remember to get a 120mm fan for the CPU-cooler. Helps tremendously.

lol, i believe i mentioned the XMS2's. They're the Corsairs BTW. You wont get much more than stock performance out of them.
G.Skill all the way my friend.

*edit* sorry for mixing up XMS2 and TWIN2X. My bad.
