Yeah it will do. What is the main purpose of your pc anyway? Btw, i will opt for a p45 chipset (at least) if you are planning to upgrade your mobo.

Where are you shopping from?

Though, the setup isn't bad.

But a CPU like an E8x00 or Q9xxx CPU will perform better in games. If you can grab a Q9400 I would, as it'd be better for games.

The rest of it is just fine though, the GTS 250 is a decent card, but unless you are playing at a 1080p res, 1GB VRAM is overkill.

It depends how much your paying...

For under $600, it's fine.
For $1000, it's not.

I assuming as is... there's no OS, peripherals, or monitor.
Once again...

I think you could do better. Component prices go, it would only be around $300, maybe $400.

depends on how high of a setting in game you want......the GTS250 is good......Q8400 will work just fine with pretty much all the games out there......ram is good too......make sure to get Vista Premium 64bit to use all 4096MB of it.....that Intel board might have a very small amount of overclocking options if none at all so advice you seek a different one.......also are you using ATX or mATX case?
